We quite enjoyed this tweet from Barcelona’s official account, despite the fact we still cannot stand the Catalan club over their handling of the Philippe Coutinho transfer saga…
Barca tweeted out Lionel Messi’s record against English sides in the Europe, bragging that he has an unbelievable habit of doing the business against the Premier League’s best.
Well, everyone apart from Liverpool of course!
Messi played against Liverpool twice competitively in the 2006/07 season, going out in the Last 16 to Rafa Benitez’s eventual finalists.

We really hope Messi plays against Liverpool this season, actually.
Fans want to come up against the world’s greatest player and Coutinho, who left us in controversial circumstances last January.
And we’d love to see how Barca’s occasionally shaky defence deals with an Anfield onslaught under the lights during a Champions League knockout tie.
We have to get through Napoli first, of course!
