What a way to celebrate! After FC Barcelona won the Copa del Rey final on May 22, Lionel Messi ran to the sidelines to see his family — and ended up getting one passionate kiss from his wife! See the sweet pic right here!
Lionel Messi was the big winner at the Copa del Rey final, and not just because his team took home the victory! The 28-year-old Barcelona star was greeted by his wife, Antonella Roccuzzo, following a huge 2-0 extra-time win over Sevilla on May 22, and she gave him perhaps the most unforgettable celebration of his career: A big smooch. Talk about a great ending to an amazing night!
Lionel was clearly one of the stars of the night in the big match, as he offered a perfect assist to Jordi Alba to score the first goal of the night in the 97th minute. The game continued for almost 30 minutes more, but that goal proved to be a major factor in the huge win for Barcelona. After winning in such exciting (and likely pretty exhausting) fashion, it seemed all Lionel wanted to do was celebrate with his wife, which is exactly what he did with a major kiss! Heck, their smooch was so passionate, that moment was practically more incredible than the game itself!
Before the exhilarating finish, the match between Barcelona and Sevilla was an intense and eventful one. With a tied score of 0-0 at the end of the regulation 90 minutes, the game went into extra time (with more than 30 extra minutes added) to make for an even more exciting bout. And as if it wasn’t crazy enough that the game time went beyond 120 minutes, there were three red cards and 12 yellow cards issued throughout the match. Clearly Lionel’s wife had a lot to celebrate with her man after the game…and boy did she take advantage of it with kisses!
Although Messi was able to carry his team to the big win, the team wasn’t sure how things were going to play out just about an hour into the game. Luis Suarez, La Liga’s top scorer this season, suffered a hamstring injury and left the field limping in tears. Even though he had to sit out the rest of the game, hopefully his wife, Sofia Balbi, was there to kiss her man’s boo-boo just like Antonella was there for Lionel! At least Luis’ team ended up victorious, right?
