There are some men that can’t stop breaking records, and one of those is Lionel Messi.
Not only did he cement his spot as the top scorer in UEFA Champions League Round of 16 games, but he also achieved a personal milestone while leading Los Blaugranas to a 5-1 against Lyon.
There might have been some controversy surrounding the actions leading to Barcelona’s first goal, but that ceased when Messi got a grip on the game. The Argentine scored the first and third goals of the game, and to top it all off, he handed out two more assists to cap a brilliant performance in front of a sellout crowd at Camp Nou Stadium.
Surprisingly, this performance by Messi has set a personal record for the South American ace, who had never scored two goals and handed out two assists in a single UEFA Champions League match, according to stats’ specialist Mister Chip.
There’s also one more thing Messi will surely be glad to celebrate this evening.
Added to that, Messi and Co. have also stolen yet another European record with their win tonight.
