Champions League action from Nicosia as APOEL play host to Barcelona, can Lionel Messi get another goal to take him ahead of Raul in the all time European Champions League goalscorer record? Messi, Neymar and Suarez will look to get the win here in a tough match up. APOEL are not one of the well known names in the UEFA Champions League but this is their third season in the group stages in the lat four years and they have played tough against both PSG and Ajax at home losing by the minimum to PSG and drawing with Ajax. An uorthodox pair or Irish man Cillian Sheridan and Brazilian Gustavo Manduca will be the key attacking players for APOEL and playing against a Barcelona team that have been less than impressive at the back this pair may cause some problems for Barcelona.
But with everything that I have just said about APOEL they are facing a Barcelona team with Neymar, Messi and Suarez. The three have not really clicked yet and Suarez has struggled to get himself on the score sheet for his new club. Messi broke the all time goalscoring record in La Liga at the weekend with a hat trick against Sevilla to mark the occasion. It wouldnt be surprising if Messi marked breaking the all time European record with a similar haul of goals. I think Barca -1 are the play here as the Barca will be looking to continue their chase of PSg in the Group.
I am taking Barce -1. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
