Messi dazzles as Barca reach Copa final

BARCELONA, April 18 (Reuters) - Lionel Messi scored a goal reminiscent of Diego Maradona's famous strike for Argentina against England in the 1986 World Cup as Barcelona romped to a 5-2 win over Getafe in their King's Cup semi-final first leg on Wednesday.

The Argentine forward set up Xavi for the opener after 18 minutes and then left Getafe players sprawling as he dribbled from his own half to net a thrilling second 11 minutes later.

Just before the break Messi slammed in a third, but plucky Getafe struck back with two goals in two minutes early in the second half as Barca's defence creaked.

Eidur Gudjohnsen and Samuel Eto'o restored Barca's three-goal cushion for the away leg next month.

Deportivo Coruna host Sevilla in the other semi-final first leg on Thursday.
