Lionel Messi made more Champions League history

    Barcelona star Lionel Messi continues his record-breaking spree after yet another successful Champions League night

    La Liga heavyweights defeated Sparta Praha 2-1 at the Sinobo Stadium on Wednesday to take their place all alone at the top of Group F.

    The Argentina international opened the scoring in the third minute after receiving a pass from Arthur to put the Catalans in front and became the first player in the history of the competition to score at least once Champions League goal in 15 straight seasons.

    Although Jan Boril leveled the score five minutes inside the second half, Peter Olayinka’s 57th-minute own-goal sealed the visitors’ triumph.

    Messi has tied himself with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Raul Gonzalez for most different teams scored against, with Slavia becoming his 33rd victim.

    Also, the 32-year-old Argentinean is now five goals clear of his arch-nemesis for the number of goals scored in the group stage, as it was his 67th goal in the Champions League group phase.
