Macy is really behind the times! The Champions League has been eliminated for 8 consecutive years.
Messi is recognized as the new king of soccer, and his achievements have surpassed those of Brazil’s Pele and Argentina’s Diego Maradona. Boxing is afraid of being young, and the ball is also afraid of being young. Is the era of Messi over? Yes, the era of Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is over. Being knocked out of the Champions League for eight consecutive seasons is proof that Messi is behind the times. In 2015, with the help of the trident of MSN, Suarez, Neymar and Messi, Barcelona won the Champions League, which was also the last time that these three stars won the Champions League. Later, when Messi played for Barcelona in 2016, he was eliminated by Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
In the Champions League in 2017, Messi once again encountered difficulties. Although Barcelona led by Messi was smooth in the group stage, he also surpassed Raul in that season and became the player with the most goals in the Champions League group stage. However, in the knockout stage of the Champions League, I met a real enemy. In the quarter-finals, I met Juventus, the Italian giants at that time. In the first leg, I suffered a 0-3 defeat away from home and returned to the home to draw 0-0, with a total score of 0-3.
Messi was eliminated from the Champions League again in 2018, although Messi reached the milestone of representing Barcelona for 600 times in La Liga that season. It also helped Spanish giants Barcelona win the La Liga title that season, but the Champions League was frustrated again and the quarter-finals met Rome. At that time, I beat Rome 4-1 at home in the first leg. I thought that the promotion of the Champions League was in sight, but I had no choice but to meet Rome, which was as fierce as a tiger at home and lost 0-3 away. In the case of a total score of 4-4, it was eliminated because there were fewer away goals.
In 2019, Messi was once again eliminated from the Champions League. In the early stage of that season, because Iniesta left the team, Messi officially became the captain of Barcelona. Under the leadership of the ball king, Barcelona won the La Liga and the Western Super Cup that season. In the Champions League, I met the Premier League giants Liverpool in the semi-final, and won the opponent 3-0 at home in the first leg very smoothly. I thought that promotion was in sight. I had no choice but to visit Anfield Stadium in the second round, and was defeated by my opponent 4-0, and the total score was eliminated by my opponent 3-4.
Messi was tragically eliminated in the Champions League in 2020. Messi made 700 appearances and scored 700 goals for Barcelona in the Champions League group match against Dortmund that season, and surpassed his old rival Cristiano Ronaldo in that season to become the player who scored the most hat tricks in La Liga. In the Champions League, Messi led Barcelona to meet Bayern, the Bundesliga overlord, in the quarter-finals, which also became the lingering shadow of Messi’s career, and he was defeated by 2-8.
Messi in 2021 is the last season of playing for Barcelona, and the Champions League still cannot escape the fate of being eliminated. In the early stage of that season, because of the numerous contradictions with the top management of the club, I once sent out a request to leave the team, but the penalty was too high and I could only stay in the team. Messi helped Barcelona win the King’s Cup that season, but in the Champions League, he met Paris. In the top 16 stage, Barcelona suffered a 1-4 home defeat at the foot of Greater Paris, and the second round drew 1-1, with a total score of 2-5.
In 2022, Messi joined the new team, Greater Paris, but once again failed in the Champions League. That season, Messi surpassed Pele, and the number of goals scored in professional matches reached a higher level. In his first season in Greater Paris, he won the Ligue 1 championship and completed the milestone of the club’s 800 appearances. In the Champions League, I met my old rival Real Madrid in the top 16 stage. In the case of winning 1-0 at home in the first leg, I was beaten by my opponent 1-3 away in the second leg, and the total score was 2-3 out.
In 2023, Messi won the championship in FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 the year before, and was crowned the World Footballer of the Year in 2022. The Champions League has always been an insurmountable hurdle. Perhaps things are always forewarned. In the last round of the group match, Benfica was overtaken by Benfica, who could hardly win the first place in the group, and changed from the first place in the group to the second place, and met Bayern, the Bundesliga overlord, in advance. The first round was 0-1 at home, and the second round was 0-2 away, with a total score of 0-3.
