Lionel Messi's Best Goal for Barcelona

Sam TigheWorld Football Tactics Lead WriterNovember 8, 2012

On April 27, 2011, Lionel Messi lit up the Santiago Bernabeu during the UEFA Champions League semifinal second leg.

The game was a tight affair, and Real Madrid's dogged defending had kept the world's best attack at bay, despite a staggering 82 percent possession falling to the visitors.

Cue Barcelona's Argentinian wizard, who takes the ball off Sergio Busquets and proceeds to humiliate Los Blancos' defence.

He rinses Lassana Diarra, Raul Albiol and Marcelo, and finally outfoxes Iker Casillas at his near post to slot home.

Has Messi scored a better, or perhaps more meaningful goal than this?
