Ladies and Gentlemen, all hail Lionel Messi.
The Argentine Wizard is arguably the greatest player of his generation and of all time and has consistently delivered the goods when needed.
He has been arguably the standout performer for over a decade, and it’s no surprise he has amasses so many trophies, won so many awards and created so many records.
Speaking of records, he created one tonight.
The Argentine scored a wonderful goal, beating two defenders and curling the ball to the back of the net while off balance. As well as giving Barca a 2-0 lead in the night, he also created a new record in the process.
That goal was his 27th in the Champions League round of 16 stage. No other player has scored more goals in the Champions League round of 16 in history.
Another record for Messi, who like his eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo, continues to create records and lay claim to the title of the ‘Greatest Of All Time’.
The GOAT indeed.
