Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero has praised Paris Saint-Germain striker Lionel Messi after the Argentina captain scored a goal in his side’s 3-1 win against Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Messi’s goal for PSG against Maccabi Haifa brought him closer to his old rival Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of 140 goals in the top European league.

Messi is still second on that list, but has overtaken Ronaldo in one ranking.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has now scored against a record 39 different opponents in the Champions League.

Messi was previously level with Ronaldo in that position at 38, with Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema their closest competitor at 34.

However, in a post after the game, Messi simply wrote on Instagram: “Champions League.”

And Aguero, a close friend of Messi, replied to his compatriot’s post with the caption: “Come on, Lionell. Send him fuse, Dad.’

Meanwhile, Ronaldo still holds a few records that Messi could beat, but he still has some work to do.
