Messi lauded by Spanish papers after his match-winning UCL display for Barcelona

Lionel Messi was in imperious form as he put Chelsea to the sword at the Nou Camp on Wednesday evening.

The Barcelona talisman almost single-handedly dragged his side into the quarter-finals with two well-taken goals and an assist as the Premier League champions were swatted aside.

It was a performance worthy of praise and the sports newspapers across Spain were quick to lavish their praise upon the Argentine maestro.

Alluding to the recent birth of his son Ciro and his celebratory pose bearing a striking resemblance to Christ the Redeemer, Mundo Deportivo went with the headline ‘Our Father’ as the 30-year-old toasted his second strike to seal the tie.

Sport went for something a touch more simple, with the word ‘Ecstasy’ plastered across their front page, along with Messi with his arms outstretched.

Another chose to make a point of the striker’s preferred route to goal, with Marca’s ‘Euro Tunnel’ headline an ode to the two nutmegs suffered by Thibaut Courtois, as Messi posted the ball between his legs for both his strikes.

Meanwhile, AS have gone down a different route, mentioning in their headline that the victory struck a blow for La Liga against the Premier League.

They note in their subheading that: ‘Spain, with Real Madrid, Sevilla and Barca, are the country with most teams left in the Champions League.’

Whether that is the case come the semi-finals will remain to be seen, with the draw for the last eight taking place on Friday.

5 records Lionel Messi can break in the next four years
What was merely a foregone conclusion has finally materialized. Barcelona ace, Lionel Messi, has finally signed a contract extension that ties him to the club till 2021, which also includes a release clause of a whopping €700 million.

Whilst the latter half of the story isn't a concern, the fans are in an absolute delirium to watch their greatest star pen a new deal following a long impediment and frustrating spells of speculations from the media.

But having put all the cacophony to rest, Messi now looks forward to at least four more years of massive success with his boyhood club, whilst also breaking a whole host of records in the process.

Here are the top five feats that the Argentine genius achieve over the course of next four years at Barcelona.

1 Highest number of European Golden Shoe

Just a few hours ago, Messi was rewarded his record-equaling fourth European golden boot for his heroic goalscoring exploits in the 2016/17 season, which saw the 30-year old finish with 37 strikes in the league. With that, not only did he draw level with his eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo on this count, but is also on course to surpass him with another fruitful season in front of goal.

The twinkle-toed Argentine currently stands at 12 goals in as many appearances, and will look forward to a whole lot more by the time the season comes to a conclusion. With Ronaldo hitting a glass ceiling in his career this season, the Real Madrid player has only accrued 2 goals in the tournament so far, having lost his goalscoring sheen. The Portuguese will sooner or later get the goals he's hungry for, but the tally of 40-45 goals he registered in the seasons gone by looks quite improbable now.

Messi is just 30 and has a few more years at the top. It's very unlikely for him not to win a fifth Golden Boot (or even more), by the time he hangs up his boots.

2 Most number of caps for FC Barcelona

Last month, Messi completed 13 years at his beloved Barcelona FC and with at least a four more still to come, it holds him in good stead to surpass his former team-mate Xavi Hernandez for the all-time highest appearances for his club.

The former midfield magician currently holds the highest number of caps, with 767 across 17 illustrious seasons, followed by Andres Iniesta with 645. However, the Blaugrana skipper is no longer a regular starter at the club and at 33 and is in the twilight of his career.

That leaves Messi with the clear path towards another great milestone. La Pulga is right now third in the list of all-time appearances with 602. He averages at least 52 appearances in a season since 2008/09, and the gap of 165 between him and his former ally could therefore be cemented in exactly four years from now, mathematically at least.

For a player of his caliber and stature, it's quite certain for Messi to not only play at Barcelona, but also play be instrumental figure to its success in the next five or six years. Regardless of how much time it takes, Messi's importance to the club is way too much to deter him from appearing regularly in the red and blue of Catalonia.

3 Player with the most Pichichi trophies

Coming back to the goal-scoring front, Messi also won his fourth Pichichi prize last season by finishing atop the La Liga chart with, as aforementioned, 37 strikes in 34 appearances. Whilst he again restored parity between him and his great rival Ronaldo on that count, Messi still has some way to go before he gets the highest number of it.

Athletic Bilbao legend Telmo Zarra currently holds the outright record for finishing as the top-scorer in Spain's premier club competition, with as many as 6 Spanish Golden Boots to his name. The late Spaniard first won it thrice on the trot - 1944/45 to 46/47, and then again in 1949/50, 50/51 and 52/53, a record that stands even after 64 years.

But now, it is under threat. Messi is firmly on course for his fifth Pichichi this season, which leaves him with just one more to draw level with Zarra and another one to surpass. And, he has twice as many chances to do the same.

The Blaugrana forward picked up his first piece of the silverware back in 2010, and added two more to his coffer in 2012 and 13, recording an astronomical figure of 50 and 46 goals respectively. Whilst replicating that kind of form is difficult, what certainly isn't is watching him continue to be the most prolific in the division.

4 Most number of hat-tricks in La Liga

Cristiano Ronaldo's blistering run of form since joining Real Madrid has seen him smash record to smithereens over the years. Of the many he's set, or equaled, one record is the highest number of hat-tricks in the league. The Portuguese currently leads the treble count with 32 of them since 2009, whilst Messi remains on his coat-tails with 28.

The first of it, however, remains one of his most special ones, as it was against their eternal rivals Real Madrid back in 2007 in a thrilling 3-3 draw, that saw the Catalans pull level on all three occasions, courtesy of the then 20-year old Messi.

That historic night in Camp Nou set the tone for 27 additional hat-tricks in the coming years, and the Argentine now remains on the cusp of another piece of history. Ronaldo's atrocious run this season has seen him struggle to bag even a goal, let alone a hat-trick. He will, definitely, hit a couple or more in the coming years, but form is clearly inclined towards his Argentinian counterpart right now.

Messi's rich vein of form opens a whole host of prospects, one of it being the prospect of surpassing the Madrid star's incredible count of 32 for the highest number of hat-tricks in the history of La Liga.

Ronaldo, are you watching?

5 Most number of trophies with FC Barcelona

Another record that is set in the stone for Messi. He is, at present, won 30 trophies with Barcelona in 13 glorious years at the club - a figure that is only matched by his great team-mate, Andres Iniesta. Former captain Xavi once claimed to have lifted the most number of trophies for the club, but his departure in 2015 has allowed his Catalan mates to steal a march over him.

Whilst Messi and Barcelona would continue to storm their way to a great deal of titles and trophies, the former can only claim the record post Iniesta's departure.

Barcelona's estranged No.8 is being increasingly overshadowed by the influx of newer names barging into the team, and can longer claim to have as much an influence in the team as he once did. Iniesta is 33 now, and even though he's offered a life-time contract by the club recently, his fading force might not inspire him to continue gracing the famed Blaugrana colours for long.

That isn't the case with Messi though. He is still ripe at 30 and exercises as profound an influence on the proceedings as ever. Once the sun sets of Iniesta's career, Messi is the natural heir to the captainship, which he's begun taking over this season onward, but will do so fulltime, very soon.

And with Barcelona's prospects of trophies as bright as ever, it's only a matter of time before the prodigal son also becomes their most successful one.

Born and raised in Santo António, Madeira, Ronaldo was diagnosed with a racing heart at the age of 15. He underwent an operation to treat his condition, and began his senior club career playing for Sporting CP, before signing with Manchester United at age 18 in 2003. After winning his first trophy, the FA Cup, during his first season in England, he helped United win three successive Premier League titles, a UEFA Champions League title, and a FIFA Club World Cup. By age 22, he had received Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year nominations and at 23 years old, he won his first Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year awards. In 2009, Ronaldo was the subject of the most expensive association football transfer[note 3] when he moved from Manchester United to Real Madrid in a transfer worth €94 million ($132 million).

In Spain, Ronaldo has won two La Liga titles, two Copas del Rey, three Champions League titles, and two FIFA Club World Cups. After joining Real Madrid, Ronaldo finished runner-up for the Ballon d'Or three times, behind Lionel Messi, his perceived career rival, before winning back-to-back Ballons d'Or in 2013 and 2014. He has scored a record 32 La Liga hat-tricks, including a record-tying 8 hat-tricks in the 2014–15 season[note 4] and is the only player to reach 30 league goals in six consecutive La Liga seasons. In 2014, Ronaldo became the fastest player in history to reach 200 La Liga goals, which he achieved in 178 matches. In 2015, he became the club's all-time leading goalscorer. In 2016, Ronaldo won his fourth Ballon d'Or by a record voting margin after sealing La Undécima, Madrid's 11th European title, and winning Euro 2016.

A Portuguese international, Ronaldo was named the best Portuguese player of all time by the Portuguese Football Federation in 2015. Ronaldo made his senior international debut in August 2003, at the age of 18. He is Portugal's most capped player of all time with over 130 caps, and has participated in seven major tournaments. He is Portugal's all-time top goalscorer. He scored his first international goal at Euro 2004 and helped Portugal reach the final. He took over full captaincy in July 2008, leading Portugal to their first-ever triumph in a major tournament by winning Euro 2016, and received the Silver Boot as the second-highest goalscorer of the tournament. One of the most marketable sportsmen, he was ranked the world's highest-paid athlete by Forbes in 2016 and 2017, as well as the world's most famous athlete by ESPN in 2016 and 2017.
