Lionel Messi is to be honoured for scoring 100 Champions League goals in the build-up to Barça’s game with Roma at the Camp Nou on Wednesday. UEFA have authorised the short ceremony a few minutes before the quarter final first leg kicks off, just after the players have finished their warm-up.
Carles Puyol, who was captain of FC Barcelona the day that Messi scored his first goal in the competition against Panathinaikos in 2005, will be on hand to present a memento to the Argentinian, who reached his ton when scoring a brace against Chelsea three weeks ago
