Messi Shines as He Makes 700th Barcelona Appearance Against Dortmund

Barcelona Talisman, Lionel Messi  had an amazing performance as he makes his 700th appearance for Barcelona at club’s win over Borussia Dortmund.

Scoring 114 goals in the Uefa Champions League, Messi was the anchorman of Barcelona’s victory against the German sid.

His deft pass released Luis Suarez for the opener, with the Uruguay forward finding the bottom left corner of the Dortmund goal, moments after being caught offside when converting another Messi pass.

Messi doubled the hosts’ lead four minutes later, registering his 613th goal for the club, with a left-foot effort from eight yards.

Antoine Griezmann completed a comfortable evening for Ernesto Valverde’s side, with his rasping drive into the bottom right corner coming from another incisive Messi pass.

England winger Jadon Sancho pulled a goal back for Dortmund, who are now third in Group F – behind Inter Milan on head-to-head record – and face a battle to join Barca in the knockout stages.

To go through, Dortmund must pick up more points from their final group fixture on 10 December, against Slavia Prague, than Inter Milan get at home to Barcelona on the same night.
