Bayern’s Barcelona menace boosted to score in another win

In all of the last three games Lionel Messi has scored in, the god of goalscoring has collected a brace and Barcelona have stuffed their opponents out of sight.

A 6-0 demolition of Getafe was followed by thumping Cordoba for eight, before rounding off with a jaw-dropping display against an initially-stubborn Bayern Munich at home.

That final goalscoring outing for Messi was in the Champions League semi-final first leg and will forever be remembered for the embarrassment he doled out on Jerome Boateng when scoring this goal:

Now the 27-year-old and his Blaugrana teammates head to Germany to take on their former manager and book a place in the final of the most desired competition in European club football.

Anyone who fancies this to be another game in which Messi scores and Barca win, which has happened on 30 occasions this season, will be very happy to find out that Ladbrokes has picked that particular outcome as their designated price boost for the game.

What was once available as a 9/4 chance can now be backed with the bookie at incredible odds of 3/1.

With the sheer regularity that Messi’s name appears on the scoresheet in Catalan wins coupled with the 97-cap international’s scoring form, it’s unlikely that such a generous enhancement is going to go unloved.
