Video: Lionel Messi's 2007 goal vs. Getafe

With Barcelona taking on Getafe tomorrow afternoon, we look back on Lionel Messi's memorable goal from this fixture back in 2007.

Barcelona will have to make do without the services of the injured Lionel Messi for tomorrow's trip to Getafe.

The Madrid-based hosts are bound to be delighted by the Argentine's absence because he has haunted them before.

While a large number of clubs have fallen victim to Messi's quality, the 26-year-old arguably scored the best goal of his career to date against the Azulones during a 2007 Copa del Rey tie at the Camp Nou. Having collected possession on the halfway line, the four-time Ballon d'Or winner proceeded to beat a quartet of players, before rounding the goalkeeper and scoring from a tight angle.

Ahead of Barca's clash against Getafe, you can relive the goal, which has been compared to Diego Maradona's effort against England in 1986, below.
