Barcelona’s 3-0 victory over Chelsea last night proved to be yet another landmark occasion for Lionel Messi, as he scored his 100th UEFA Champions League goal in front of a packed Camp Nou.
The Argentine’s latest milestone achievement will be even sweeter for many Blaugrana fans given the fact he surpassed a record previously set by Cristiano Ronaldo in the process.
Indeed, it took Messi just 123 appearances in Europe’s premier club competition to reach his century of goals – that is 14 games fewer than the Portuguese international.
