Hélder Postiga's stunning scissor kick goal against Barcelona

This is probably going to end up being the best goal of the weekend.

Valencia's Hélder Postiga wasn't pleased when his team conceded a first half hat trick to Barcelona's Lionel Messi, so he did what all good players do: score twice in the final minutes before halftime to pull his team back into the game.

The first of his two goals late in the first half was spectacular as he directed a cross from defender João Pereira past Barca goalkeeper Victor Valdés with a ridiculous scissor kick.

Postiga scored on a header three minutes later, but he'll probably need a couple more if Valencia hopes to pull off a winning result against Barca.
