Lionel Messi has scored a goal to open FC Barcelona's La Liga campaign.

Does that sound familiar? It should. It's the fifth consecutive year you can say that.

Oh, and it was his first shot on target of the year.

The Argentina maestro followed up his first effort with another goal in the second half, making it look preposterously easy.

So what are your predictions for how many goals he'll score this season?
