Lionel Messi Sets New Record In Champions League Knock Out Stage by Imstinct29: 7:26am On Feb 16, 2022

Lionel Messi has Equal Thierry Henry's record for most missed penalties in Champions League history while surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo for most penalty attempts.

He's missed five of 23 penalty attempts in the competition, with his latest coming in Paris Saint-Germain's last-16 win over Real Madrid on Tuesday.

Thibaut Courtois dove the right way to deny Messi after Kylian Mbappe had won the spot kick.

For match of the first leg between European heavyweights, goalscoring chances were rare outside of Messi's saved penalty, as Real Madrid were mostly content to sit back and defend at the Parc des Princes.

However, PSG broke through in stoppage time to win 1-0, with Kylian Mbappe shooting through the legs of Courtois.

Messi has struggled at times in his debut season with PSG, though he recently has had four goal involvements in his past four games.
