Lionel Messi’s brilliant strike against Real Betis has been nominated for La Liga goal of the season which will be voted for by supporters.

The Barcelona captain bagged a hat-trick at the Benito Vilamarin back in March, but it was his third goal that really caught the eye as he chipped the goalie from the edge of the area.

It was a strike so outstandingly good that even the Betis fans joined in with the applause as Barcelona ran out 4-1 winners.

Messi is the only Barcelona player on the shortlist. The other strikes are Pablo Fornals’ spectacular long-ranger against Athletic, José Luis Morales’ fine individual goal against Betis, Iago Aspas’ effort against Huesca and and Chimy Avila’s rocket against Athletic.
