FC Barcelona moved up to third place in the Spanish soccer championship on Wednesday. The Catalans beat Athletic Bilbao 3-2 away, seven points behind leaders Atletico Madrid, who played two games less.
The match winner for Barca was once again Lionel Messi. The Argentine scored two goals (38th, 62nd) after the remarkable assists by Pedri and Antoine Griezmann, was involved in the creation of the first goal by Pedri (14th) and also recorded a shot to the crossbar (59th). The second goal of Bilbao by Iker Muniain (90th) after a mistake by Messi came too late for the Basques.
