Lionel Messi scores, breaks three Champions League records in Barcelona win


Lionel Messi scored for Barcelona in their 5-1 win vs. Ferencvaros.

Messi would receive the ball on the right wing, dribble towards goal as he beat his markers and got fouled inside the penalty area. He would score the penalty which was awarded and would make Champions League history. Messi is the first player to ever since in 16 consecutive seasons of the tournament.

The Argentine would extend a record which he holds, scoring against 36 different teams of the Champions League. The third record is that he has now scored 69 goals in the Champions League group stage, which is more than any other player.


  1. Very unfortunate own goal by Tagliafico.. He looked ready for the initial ball but it took a deflection before reaching his feet..
    How did he and Licha Martinez perform in second half?
    And how was Romero’s performance for Atalanta?

  2. C Romero looking good so far.

    Side note…he looks a bit thin, although 170 lbs is ok. Maybe an extra 10 lbs could benefit him. Time to hit the weights and binge on nocci and fried stuff :).
    (no need to go all expert dietician on me, i was kidding about nocci)

    • Actually Gnocchi is a flower and egg pasta, if one uses high grade flower or substitute in some protein powder for some of the flower combined with the protein in the egg white you could get yourself a pretty decent healthy protein meal out of it, as long as you don’t drown the Gnocchi in a fat laced sauce after you’re done.

      On a side note, C.Romero is fantastic but I’m not gonna focus on his performance because this is a food forum and not a football one 😉

      • :). nice. I may try the protein sub sometime.

        Romero isn’t a small guy by any means but aside from Ota and Pezz, current crop of CBs are on the shorter/thinner side. Not that its a problem but it helps to have big boys defending.

  3. Real 3-0 half time , Marcelo , casimero , Eder militao and the “wonderkid” rodrygo , while the other wonderkid vinicius is benched , Brazilians are overrated as fuck

  4. Just finished watching Bolivia vs. Argentina for the third time. Scaloni and the rest of the coaching staff are really doing some great things and we should all be grateful to them for what they’ve been doing. One thing that caught my eyes is how the front three had their fair share of defending. I feel that Scaloni is slowly introducing “Gegenpressing” to the team and if that really happens it will pay divends for sure.

    BTW, since 2016 Lautaro and J.Correa are the first players other than Messi to score a qualifier goal for Argentina. I don’t know if this thing was mentioned in the forum previously, but it’s something worth mentioning for two reasons; A) Messi’s greatness and B) Team chemistry and the development of the rebuilding process.

      • Right winger who cuts inside. Definitely has pace . Grown v fast since gallardo started giving him starting role at River plate. Maybe dimaria early days with more conversion . Urzi on left wing is also loads of pace & more trickery. I am really looking forward to see batista’s u23 in Olympics.

        • Totally agree, Amit..The talent is there and definitely the Olympics team is something we should be very excited about with the team at Batista’s disposal and I just hope the clubs are ready to release the players and the team is there to get a medal (Gold hopefully)!!

        • Totally agree Amit.. Eagerly looking forward to Batista’s team for the Olympics. I guess we have the right blend of the team who have international and club level exposure and would definitely be title contenders (Gold medal hopefully !!). Hope the clubs are ready to release the players unlike the scenario that happened in 2016.

    • Ya he’s only 20 and had 5 goals and 1 assist in his last 4 copa libertadoris matches . Btw there is an Arabic page called ريان نعيم , and he’s stealing comments and idea off of here and has his own Facebook page . I even got screenshots and all

  5. Last night the player who surprised me the most was Marcos Acuna. One the basis of his performance against Chelsea looks like he has improved himself alot since joining Sevilla. Hope he continues playing like this and not just one match illusion.
