#3: BECOME THE BARCELONA PLAYER WITH MOST CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL APPEARANCES
Out of the five Champions League trophies that Barcelona have won, Messi has played in three finals, winning all three. The striker made his three appearances in 2009, 2011 and 2015 respectively. However, it is Andres Iniesta who holds the record for most Champions League final appearances.
The 2006 Champions League final remains the only difference between the Spaniard and Messi. An injury denied the Barca attacker from featuring in the final versus Arsenal. However, it remains to be seen if Barca can reach the finals this year.
Even if they manage to do so, the record would still be intact with Iniesta, unless he suffers an injury that will keep him out of the final. Another course it could take is if Iniesta decides to leave the Catalans, as his future is in doubt according to recent developments at the club.
