The Argentine attacker has admitted that anything can happen against Juventus this Saturday in Berlin.
This weekend’s Champions League final is poised perfectly, with two historic European clubs fighting it out to complete momentous trebles.
Both dominant domestically and wrapping up a cup success apiece, it may well come down to a rare moment of genius to decide the winner between Juventus and Barcelona.
As such, all eyes will be on Lionel Messi, who has been in sparkling form since the turn of the year.
The four-time Ballon d’Or winner has proven himself as the best player on the planet and has been a driving force in the Camp Nou outfit’s incredible record this year.
Following a superb individual goal against Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final, the Argentina international has spoken out about the match against Juventus.
Messi has stated that the game could go either way but that Barcelona were desperate to crown their campaign with a final success.
"It's a different type of match; it's special,” Messi is quoted as saying by Marca.
“We went through a lot to get there and we know it won't be easy. Juventus are a great club. Anything can happen.”
Messi has formed a devastating attacking trident with Luis Suarez and Neymar this season, which will take some stopping in Berlin.
The Champions League final will draw the European season to a close, with Messi off to the Copa America with Argentina.
