WATCH: Messi scores immediately upon return from injury

Lionel Messi needed all of three minutes to mark his return from injury with a goal.

Sidelined since Sept. 21 with a groin injury, the forward came on in the 55th minute Barcelona's clash with Deportivo La Coruna and promptly found the back of the net in the 58th minute.

Connecting with a through ball from Neymar, Messi fired home a rising shot from 6 yards out to give Barca a four-goal lead. The strike marked Messi's ninth goal in all competitions this season.

Rafinha netted a first-half brace and Luis Suarez also scored as Barcelona rolled to a 4-0 triumph.
