Lionel Messi has been one of the most consistent players in the world of football since the start of the last decade. His performance against Arsenal in the Champions League 2010 quarter-finals second leg at Camp Nou is truly one of the most well-rounded displays by a modern-day attacker in recent times. Lionel Messi scored four goals against Arsenal in front of home fans to lead his side to a 4-1 win and progress to the semi-finals.

The Barcelona vs Arsenal UCL quarter-finals second leg will be remembered by Blaugrana fans for a long, long time. It was the first match in which a Barcelona player scored a quadruple in a Champions League in the form of Lionel Messi. The little master was unstoppable on that fateful night at the Camp Nou when he singlehandedly ripped apart Arsenal despite Niklas Bendtner's opening goal.
