The Catalan club have been on top for large periods of the fixture, but opposition goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has managed to keep the Bavarian side in the match until this point. With less than 20 minutes left in the match the Argentinian finally broke the deadlock.

The 27-year-old cut in from the right, and managed to smash it in at the near post, with it looking like Neuer may have thought that he was going for the other corner. Either way, it looked like the shot may have been unstoppable for the World Cup winner, and Munich may have a tough road back in to a match that they have largely been on the back foot for.

Is Lionel Messi the best player in the world for goals like this? Also, is Neuer the man of the match even after this?
