Messi Targets More Magic Moment

LIONEL MESSI insists there are still many more magical moments to come for him and Barcelona after celebrating his 100th Champions League appearance on Wednesday.

The Argentinian became the youngest player to reach the milestone when he took to the turf during Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Roma in Italy.

Messi almost celebrated the match with a goal when he crashed the bar late on as Barcelona looked to kick off the group stages with a win.

And although victory eluded him, the 28-year-old took to Facebook to promise fans he still has a lot more European nights left in the tank.

“I’m really happy to have played 100 games in the best club competition in the world,” Messi wrote on the social network page.

“There have been a lot of European nights to remember and there are many more magic nights to come.”

Messi is hoping to win the Champions League for a fifth time after winning the prestigious competition in 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2015.

Barcelona will also face Bayer Leverkusen and BATE Borisov in Group E.

Messi’s arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo moved three goals ahead of him at the top of the Champions League all-time goal scoring list with a hat-trick on Tuesday evening.
