Lionel Messi Can Set Incredible Record Against Manchester City Tonight
Manchester City have the unenviable task of trying to contain Barcelona's feared attacking trident; Messi, Suarez & Neymar. City host the Catalan giants tonight in the Champions League as Messi chases an incredible landmark.
The Premier League side got battered in the reverse fixture mainly thanks to the Argentine ace. A hat-trick inflicted Pep Guardiola with a miserable return to the Nou Camp with his new side.
And Messi returns to deliver more misery to English oppositions having netted 16 times in just 15 appearances though the penalty he bagged a couple of years ago at City ended a goal-drought on English soil.
If the 29-year-old can find himself on the score-sheet, and again, he'll hit the 500 Barcelona career goal mark. Messi's current tally sits at 498 and is in touching distance of the incredible record.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner is on terrifying form scoring not one but two hat-tricks in the Champions League group so far against Borussia Monchengladbach and, as mentioned earlier, City.
