Lionel Messi to be honoured for his 100 Champions League goals before Barça v Roma
Former first team captain Carles Puyol to present award in short pregame ceremony in recognition of the Argentinian's century of UCL goals
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
