That Lionel Messi is a maestro with his feet on a football field is known. But did you know the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is also a maestro with his fingers?

That's right. Lionel Messi, arguably the best player the world has ever seen, is quite the piano player and he showcased his prowess on the keyboard by playing the Champions League anthem ahead of the start of Europe's top tier club competition. Have a listen.

Messi will look to inspire Barcelona to a winning start when they take on Juventus in their first group game. Juventus eliminated Barcelona last season on the way to the final before losing to their eternal rivals, Real Madrid.

Barcelona have started their league campaign on the front foot with big wins in their opening games and are keen to put the departure of Neymar behind them as soon as possible.

French starlet Ousmane Dembele, who came in a big money move from Borussia Dortmund, has already made a positive impression on his debut in the Catalan derby and will look to build a deadly partnership with Messi and Luis Suarez.
