The Best Goal of this season’s UEFA Champions League has been given to Lionel Messi’s free-kick effort that sealed Barcelona’s first leg semi-final victory over Liverpool.
Messi helped Barca beat the eventual champions 3-0 in the first leg of their semi-final tie, but they crashed out after a 4-0 defeat at Anfield.
The Argentine’s spectacular free-kick beat second-placed Cristiano Ronaldo’s half-volley against Manchester United in the group stages.
Fans voted through UEFA’s official website, with Ivan Rakitic’s volley at Tottenham Hotspur being the third-best goal of this season, ahead of Arjen Robben’s strike against Benfica.
Messi also finished the campaign as the tournament’s top scorer with 12 goals.
