Barcelona star Lionel Messi scores stunning overhead kick in training ahead of Sunday's El Clasico

The Argentine showed off his skills ahead of Sunday’s El Clasico at the Nou Camp with Barca already crowned La Liga champions.

Messi, 30, receives the ball with his back to goal and casually flicks it upwards and launches himself into the air and connects perfectly.

First-choice keeper Marc Andre ter Stegen watched on as the ball flew past him into the bottom right corner of the net.

Training or first team game in front of a capacity crowd, mere mortals would have run off to celebrate, but not Messi, he just high-fives a team-mate and walks off.

A similar celebration to Ronaldo when did the same in training for Los Blancos last month.

There is still plenty to play for on Sunday as the European champions look to chase down local rivals Atletico Madrid to finish runners-up with four games to go.

Newly-crowned champions Barca will be desperate to go the whole season unbeaten in the league and will not want to lose to their bitter rivals on their own patch.

Zidane will look to take maximum points to help steal second place while keeping his squad fresh for the Champions League final later this month against Liverpool.
