Lionel Messi simply can’t stop scoring this season and he’s now brought up 100 in the Champions League after netting a brace against Chelsea.

Messi opened the scoring after just two minutes and eight seconds but then added his second, and Barcelona’s third, after 64 minutes to bring up his century.

Both times he slipped the ball through Thibault Courtois’s legs, leaving the Chelsea goalkeeper completely helpless.

In between he also set up a first Barcelona goal for Ousmane Dembele, which also means he has more assists than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues.

And to think that he hadn’t even scored against Chelsea until a couple of weeks ago....
