MOST COMMENTED

[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Lionel Messi's first four-goal game propelled Barcelona to a 4-1 win over Arsenal and moved it into the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League against Inter Milan.

The Argentine went into the game with three hat tricks already in 2010 but only needed one half to add a fourth, erasing Arsenal's lead on Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner's goal.

"Congratulations to Barcelona, they were the better side," said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. "We lost to the better team and the best player in the world. Over the two legs we gave away cheap goals, defensively we gave them the goals when they weren't looking dangerous. But Messi when he gets the ball is unstoppable, he can change direction at any time."

    Messi is probably the best player ever to wear the Barcelona jersey and he is only 22. Players like Maradona, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, and Figo are legends at the club but Messi(Little Magician) has already propelled Barcelona to heights that hasn't been seen before. His four(4) goals against Arsenal in the Champions League were majestic but seemed so effortless. I can go on and on talking about Messi but everyone should know that he is in a class by himself. Just remember this is only my opinion. Peace.

    It was a great game and Barcelona shown how good it is as a team but two of the goals were by way of poor calls by the line ref. The score should have ended 2-1, not 4-1.
