Footballer Direct Roundup: Messi Breaks Champions League Goalscorer Record
Luis Suarez opened Barcelona's lead with his first goal for his new team helping towards a 4-0 victory over APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League. The other 3 goals were courtesy of Lionel Messi, the last being his 72nd goal in the competition and earning him a new record as the leading goalscorer in Champions League history.
Messi also became the all-time record Primera Division scorer at the weekend and was not the only hat-trick hero. Fellow Argentinian Sergio Aguero Matched his feat on a dramatic night at the Etihad Stadium. Aguero shot Man. City into an early lead after a penalty won after a bad tackle from Benatia. Benatia appeared to make no contact with the ball and took Aguero down from behind, earning himself a red card.
