Yes, Messi now owns yet another record in his collection. Enjoy 3 beautiful goals from the greatest player to have played the game.

3. Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao – Copa Del Rey Final (2015)

On 30th May 2015, Lionel Messi scored one of his best goals as FC Barcelona beat Athletic Club 3-1 in the Copa del Rey final. Undisputedly the best goal in Copa del Rey final history. The close control, the balance and dribble, the quality of the finish – this goal has everything. Despite this, it is arguably not his best-ever strike. It is arguably Messi’s best solo goal, his strike has earned comparisons to Diego Maradona’s Goal of the Century.

2. Barcelona vs Real Madrid – Champions League Semi-Final (2010/11)

“Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. How good is he?”

Lionel Messi has often been regarded as one of the best players in football history. He has scored many goals for Barcelona, Argentina and PSG at the biggest stages possible. One of his best goals came in a fiery UCL clash against Real Madrid. In terms of dribbling and control, no one comes close to Messi’s irresistible quality in this highlight. Somehow, though, we rank two of his goals as even better. Lionel Messi ran past the entire Real Madrid defence, leaving behind five Madrid players before scoring from a very tight angle with his weaker right foot.

1. Barcelona v Getafe (2007)

It was 15 years ago when a young Lionel Messi received the ball around 60 yards away from the opposition goal, just inside his own half and scored the greatest goal of his career. One of the greatest goals of all time. During this unbelievable run, Messi carves through countless Getafe defenders – and the goalkeeper. Messi’s jaw-dropping solo goal against Getafe earns the top spot on our list and even drew comparisons to Diego Maradona’s strike at the 1986 World Cup. There were 28 minutes on the clock, and Barca were already 1-0 up, when Messi embarked on his sensational solo run that led to his goal.
