CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: FC Barcelona vs. Bayer Leverkusen
Tonight we headed to Barcelona to watch the FC Barcelona take on Bayer Leverkusen. This was a quarterfinal match in the UEFA Champions League and possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity as our seats were 5 rows from the pitch!
Messi (#10), currently known as the best player in the world, scored 5 goals including 3 in the goals right in front of us!! Tello added 2 goals on our end which put Barca up 7-0. Our tour guide, Clive, told us this was the most goals he has ever seen in a Champions League match in his 30 years of watching Barcelona play.
For all the astonishing feats in his young career, Lionel Messi had never scored five goals in a professional game. And no one had ever scored five times in a Champions League match.
Our team witnessed history at Camp Nou.
Final score: Barcelona 7 - Bayer Leverkusen 1
