Remember when Lionel Messi still sported a mullet and made that amazing run against Getafe to score one of the most impressive goals you could ever see? That was back in 2007, but Messi is still dazzling as one of the best (arguably the best) players in the world. While his run against Eibar did not end with another glorious goal to get Ray Hudson screaming with delight, it was nonetheless one of the better runs you’ll see this year and worth watching again – even if you’re not a Barcelona fan. Sit back and enjoy the way Messi dribbles past four defenders – finishing off with a wonderfully effortless nutmeg before passing the ball into the box.
Don’t forget that Barcelona plays Manchester City this Wednesday in the Champions League, and then they have another El Clasico on Saturday against Real Madrid.
