Leo Messi once again scored in the Champions League. However, this goal is a special one for the Argentine: it was his first club goal which was not for Barca. This was for PSG.
In addition, it was against against Pep Guardiola’s side. The Catalan was obviously Messi’s coach at Barcelona for many years and they are good friends. The Argentinian international scored his 27th goal against the Big Six in England and he has needed just 35 European games to do it.
The English press did not hesitate in admitting how good Messi is. “Messi has scored his 27th goal against a Premier League opponent in 35 matches. All of them in the Champions League and against the Big Six. And they said he couldn’t play here,” Gary Lineker said on television.
“He always appears on the big occasions… and against Guardiola! He’s one of the greatest,” former footballer Owen Hargreaves said. Without doubt, his favourite victim is Manchester City, who he has scored against on no less than seven occasions in seven matches
