This Tuesday, Barça will receive Getafe in the 34th match of La Liga, with only 5 remaining. And every time the team from Madrid comes to Camp Nou, it's impossible not to remember the amazing goal scored by Messi against them on April 2007.

The era of Rijkaard on Barça bench was about to end (he would leave the next season). The team had won two Ligas and the Champions League in Paris, but they had also lost the UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla and the performance of the players wasn't the expected.

That year, in Copa del Rey Barça faced Getafe in the semifinals. the Catalans won 5-2 in the first leg, with one goal that will always be remembered by the Barça fans. Xavi sent the ball to Messi, and the Argentinian started running from the midfield, dribbling up to 6 opponents, including the goalkeeper, and scoring after 12 seconds with the ball.

As you can listen to in the video, our broadcaster Joaquim Maria Puyal commented the goal with a lot of excitement.
