Barça’s home record in the #UCL is ridiculous. Now 36 games unbeaten at Camp Nou in Europe’s elite club competition. Far from convincing in the final stages, though

No matter who you support, there’s simply no denying that Messi is on an entirely different level to any other footballer either past or present #UCL

That first half at Camp Nou #UCL #FCBlive

Nailed on penalty #UCL

❤️ Like this tweet if you think Lionel Messi is the greatest of all time 🐐

Reply to it if you don't

Lionel Messi showing once again just why he is the greatest player around. Increíble! #FCBlive #UCL
