By scoring a goal yesterday in Barcelona’s 5-1 victory over Hungary’s Frenkvarozi team at the opening of the Champions League season, Messi has scored in 16 consecutive copies of the continental competition.
And the “Bolga” became the second player after the former Manchester United star Ryan Giggs to achieve this feat.
In these seasons, the Argentine star scored at least one goal, and his first goal was against the Greek Panthenikos in the 2005-2006 season, and he was his only goal in the competition at the time, and he also scored one goal in the following season.
In the following seasons, Messi “exploded” in football and scored 6 goals in the 2007-2008 and 2018-2019 seasons, and his best numbers in the continental competition were the 2011-2012 season when he scored 14 goals.
The worst score since 2006-2007 was last season, when he scored only 3 goals.
His goal against the Hungarian team means that he scored against 36 different teams in the Champions League, which is a record in the competition.
Absolute record … 🐐😍 pic.twitter.com/ZFzVmB6V7H
