Lionel Messi makes Champions League history with five goals and beat Bayer Leverkusen 7-1 in Barcelona Camp Nou

Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in one match Champions League last night and moved to within seven goals to become the highest scorer in the history of Barcelona at the age of 24 only.

In line with the exceptional nature of the profession of a record player had complained of headaches before the demolition of one man of the team that just four days earlier he had been beaten Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

It is not easy to score five goals in one game. I can say this because I only scored 11 in all my life. The director of Pep Guardiola after the game gives him another game and he will draw to me.

He said Bayer Leverkusen coach Robin Dutt: “There are no words to Messi and his Barcelona side are from another galaxy.”

Messi means five goals for Barcelona and Argentina so far he has scored about 250 goals in 378 appearances, 49 in 53 games this season. His tally in the European game now 54.

He has 49 goals in the Champions League this season, 12 – and this is more than double the proceeds of the second-highest scorer Mario Gomez goal in six years.

To put the records in context, and Raul was 27 when arrived at the barrier of 49 goals in the Champions League. Messi is three years his junior. He said that he went with the level of Alfredo Di Stefano and the highest scorer in the history of 6 tournament.

He said Guadiola: is the best in the world, and I’m lucky to say that I had trained him. It is unique in terms of talent, but also in terms of his competitiveness.

He does not think in the annals of great. Tens of one and tries to score the second, he gets a second, and wants the third, and this is how to think.

It is among the greatest of all time. Di Stefano when he played, and said there would be last, and along came Johan Cruyff, and said that he will never be another, and Maradona came along, and now we have Messi.

Must include Pele or will get upset.

The director of the Barcelona beaming, not only with the performance of Messi is incredible but with the annihilation of his team Bayer Leverkusen.

One year ago today, they scraped past Arsenal at this stage of the competition after a 3-1 home win over feature which gave them a total of 4-3.

This time I read the final result 10-2, in order to evade any suggestions that they are slipping after 13 titles in the past four years. Guardiola

He admitted that he used performance against AC Milan Arsenal brave the night before to warn his players against complacency.

He said: Arsenal has nothing to lose in the first half and they scored three, but in the second half, suddenly there were expectations and pressure to complete the return and it was not very easy.

Milan also has eased in the first half In the second half they have to fight to get through. We did not want to repeat it.

Messi opened the scoring in the 25th minute a pass from Xavi Hernandez. Got 2 of Cesc

Fabregas pass before the end of the first half and in the second half, with Barcelona already safely in the quarter-final draw went into overdrive.

Andres Iniesta scored four minutes from the pass in the second period, and again after 58 minutes and 84.

Cristian Tello scored two goals and also on any other night of the 20-year-old was the story, but there was not dominating little man who is beginning to dwarf many of the greats of the game.

There was a fight between the players Bayer Leverkusen after the first leg, as it would take his shirt – this time picked up and kept the ball in the game and presented to the tunnel.

He said it’s nice to score five goals, I do not recall having done it before in my life, I am very happy.

Guardiola was given a week off after receiving a yellow card 5 in the league kept him out of league games last week. Seems that the rest of that have done good in the world.
