A new round to the Champions League that will initiate in the Camp Nou with the aim that the culés, that remained 1-1 in the gone, finish the work to win the note to the final to eight of Lisbon.

The true is that Leo Messi is a safe of life in the decisive parties of eighth of final and the statistics like this reflect it.

Like captain, Leo Messi has become a figure more intervencionista in his public apparitions, criticising what does not like him of the team and signalling the way to be followed when the things do well. Something that has gone seeing during the season, as we have explained in 'FCBN'.
