Simmons Soccer witnessed MESSI break records!

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


  1. Match to remember to be sure. Gave me something to brag on... my daughter was at that game. Even if it took some set up for non-soccer fans.

  2. Game to remember for sure. Gave me something to brag on... my daughter was at that game, even if it does take some explanation of its significance to non-soccer fans.
