The Argentinian's Maradona-esque run in the 2007 Copa del Rey semi-finals wins the fans' vote
Another all-time best ‘Goal of the Month’ competition draws to an end and once again the winner is Leo Messi, this time for that his goals against Getafe that was si amazingly similar to the famous one that his compatriot Diego Maradona had scored against England in the 1986 World Cup quarter finals.
Messi’s version was scored against Getafe in the first leg of the Copa del Rey 2006-07 semi-final. After 28 minutes, he collected the ball from Xavi Hernández and then went on a dazzling solo run right through the midst of the visiting midfield and defence before slotting the ball past Luis García.
Having already been voted Barça’s ‘Best Goal Ever’ in a recent fan vote, this goal was always the favourite to win against another Messi goal, this time in the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid (2010/11), Xavi’s against the same side in 2003/04 and the one for Luis Suárez against PSG in the 2014/15 Champions League.
