Lionel Messi’s superb record against English clubs has once again been highlighted on Tuesday evening.

Messi and co. see off Man City

Lionel Messi and co. would face off against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City on Tuesday.

PSG, on the other hand, were able to keep City’s fierce attack at bay and then hit them on the counter.

Idrissa Gueye would open the scoring for the home side after just eight minutes.

Only three players; Jamie Vardy, Sergio Aguero and Eden Hazard, have scored more in the same period.

What makes Messi’s achievement so special though, is that, unlike the other players on the below list, Messi has never even played in the Premier League.
