Lionel Messi Scores His 100th Champions League Goal

Lionel Messi became just the second player ever to reach score a 100th goal in UEFA's premier competition when he matched Cristiano Ronaldo by scoring his 100th goal in the Champions League.

The world will be a worse place when Lionel Messi has hung up his football boots. For now we can continue to bask in his glory and all the records and landmarks he has reached, with yet another checked off tonight.

Messi had already scored over 500 goals for Barca, become their leading scorer of all time and scored more than 600 goals in his career amongst many other records.

He finished the Group Stages this season on 97 goals in the competition and grabbed his 98th in the first leg of the second round against Chelsea, away at Stamford Bridge.

It took him just two minutes of the second leg for him to add to the tally, scoring the 99th. And, having set up Ousmane Dembele for the second, he struck in the 64th minute for his second of the night, making it 3-0 and giving him his 100th Champions League goal.

Just an incredible player.

How many Champions League goals will he have by the end of his career?
