There are few footballers in the world who can match Lionel Messi’s level of ability.
In fact, few have had as much success as the Barcelona superstar in a career that has seen him win more La Liga titles than anyone else.
He has scored more than 50 goals in each of his five seasons in the top flight, but this is his first Champions League final.
He and Messi will be hoping that they can pull off a hat-trick.
And they will have to do it against a side that has won five in a row against the Germans.
At times, they’ve been too slow and too careless.
But the Germans are not a side who likes to take the easy way out.
They are a team who likes a lot of pressure and will test the patience of both sides with a determined, attacking approach.
It will be the first time they’ve faced off against the French champions since 2004, and this is where the chances of a win seem very real.
This match is important for both sides because it could decide who gets the two places in next season’s Champions League.
Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has won all of his Champions League matches in 2017/18, including the last two.
