Lionel Messi’s effort vs Getafe in 2007 voted Barcelona’s greatest ever goal

Lionel Messi's solo effort against Getafe in 2007 has been voted Barcelona's best ever goal

Lionel Messi has well and truly cemented himself in Barcelona's history.

The Argentine made his debut in 2004 and he immediately made an impact in the first team.

He has since gone on to win everything with his club, scoring 602 goals in the process.

And he won another accolade on Thursday as one of his goals was voted the club's best goal in history.

In the past three months, Barcelona have asked the club's fans which goal they think is their greatest in history.

Fans had the option to pick from 64 of the club's best ever goals, with 500,000 fans giving their view.

And the result was announced today, with Messi's goal against Getafe in the 2007 Copa del Rey semi-finals emerging as the victor.

In truth, it was a deserving winner.

Leo Messi jinked his way past Getafe defenders

Messi picks up the ball just inside his own half and jinks past two players.

Running at goal with some velocity, Messi then meanders his way through another trio of opposition players.

He then finished the run off in style, dribbling past the goalkeeper and then finishing into an empty net.

Watch it below:


Messi then thanked the Barcelona fans for voting his goal as the best in club history.

"I want to thank everybody who chose my goal as the best," he said. "Thanks for this gift, and for continuing to put a little bit more of me in the history of this club.

"All the best and thanks to everyone."

Incredibly, goals scored by Messi also finished second and third in the vote.

His goal against Atletico Madrid in the 2014/15 season finished in second, while his strike against Real Madrid in the 2010/11 campaign came third.
