After changing his tactics to 4-2-3-1 at the midway point of last season, Allegri masterminded a 3-0 victory over Barca in Turin, followed by a 0-0 draw at Camp Nou.

This is the first time they will be squaring off in the group stage, but that is unlikely to make Tuesday's encounter any less interesting.

The match is highly likely to be a tight game, and with the form both teams are in, a highly-intense match seems to be on the cards. Their less heralded new signing, Nelson Semedo, has impressed at right-back, while their pressing appeared drastically improved under new manager Ernesto Valverde.

As replays displayed Messi's aggrieved demeanour the other commentator weighed in, pleased with how quickly Skomina made his decision. He later teed up Marcus Rashford for the hosts' third goal after Romelu Lukaku had struck early in the second period. First-half goals from Seydou Doumbia, Gelson Martins and Bruno Fernandes put Sporting in control and Felipe Pardo's brace at the end was not enough to save Olympiakos.

"Luckily I have the chance to play with Messi in the national team".

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu hailed Lionel Messi as the best player of all-time as the Argentine lifted the mood at the crisis-ridden Catalan giants with a double in a 3-0 thrashing of Juventus to start their Champions League campaign.

However, Rico backtracked from his claim on Twitter last night by tweeting: "He warned the public: I've been raised with Dembele and Messi".

Make no mistake, this match is the most important match being played in the Champions League tonight and it will definitely make an impact on the rounds to come.

"What I did last year no one expected and now everyone expects that I can do it again", said Dybala. But the game soon escaped them.

Entering the match, Messi had never scored on Buffon.

The good news for United was that his replacement, Marouane Fellaini, scored with a towering header about 15 minutes after coming onto the pitch. Cutting into the box, he drew four defenders before squaring the ball, allowing Ivan Rakitic to score unchallenged.

His clash with the referee only seemed to inspire Messi to greater heights as he drove through the Juventus defence once more and, when his low cross was only partially cleared by Stefano Sturaro, Rakitic slotted home the rebound.
