Football fans have compared Lionel Messi with Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe following Barcelona’s exit in the Champions League.

Liverpool did a repeat of the 2005 Champions League finals when they came from three goals down to beat AC Milan on penalties to win the crown.

On Tuesday, Lionel Messi’s Barcelona were 3-0 up heading into the second leg of their Champions League semi-final tie with the Reds.

However, the English side turned the tide by beating the Nou Camp outfit 4-0 to make it to the final of the competition for the second time in a trot.

Messi who scored a brace in the first leg at the Camp Nou, could not replicate such form at the Anfield, making fans wonder if it was Nigerian screen diva Mercy Aigbe that featured in the clash or the Argentine star.

Reacting to the development, Mercy Aigbe took to her social media handle to write: “Nigerians will not kill me oh Wetin be my own for this football matter, that people have been tagging me since.”
