The Argentinian player made his 142nd Champions League appearance versus Napoli. That is the same number as the Real Madrid striker reached. His next target is go past Xavi in third on 151 matches.

Leo Messi continues making history in football. This time it was in the Champions League, his first game in the competition for nearly six month. When referee Cuneyt Cakir blew the opening whistle, the Argentinian went joint fourth for most number of Champions League appearances. 

He is now level with another top player in Raul who retired after 142 appearances. Messi just needs one more appearance to go past him. 

In fact, Leo Messi's next challenge is to go past Xavi Hernandez in third. The now Al Saad coach is on 151 games so Messi should break that next season. Before Saturday's match, Messi was joint 5th with Ryan Giggs.. 

Cristiano Ronaldo is in second on 170 appearances and he can add to his tally while the leader is Iker Casillas with 177 appearances.
