Who will be the top scorer in this season’s Champions League?
We take a look at ten players who will be lighting up scoreboards around Europe in the coming months.
1LIONEL MESSI – FW – FC BARCELONA
Lionel Messi currently sits second on the all-time Champions League scoring list with 86 goals and he will be looking to add to that incredible total in a big way this season.
After being eliminated by fellow Spanish side Atletico Madrid in last year’s quarterfinals, Messi and Barcelona have their sights set on recapturing the European crown.
He has started the competition off as well as can be expected, with a hat-trick in Barcelona’s 7-0 steamrolling of Celtic in their first group stage match.
It is Messi’s sixth career Champions League hat-trick, which is the most in the history of the competition.
