Champions League Semis

So Barcelona did go through to the Semifinals of the European Champions League as expected. But the goal they needed did not get scored until their superstar Messi came on as a substitute late in the second half while the team was a goal down on the game and 3-2 down on aggregate.

He didn’t even have to score a goal himself. His presence was enough to motivate the team to score a crucial equalizer that would see them through to last four on away goals. It was Pedro who fired the shot home and made sure his team a place in the semis for the sixth time in a row.

A prolific goalscorer and a talisman for his team. Messi is simply the best.
