Lionel Messi will be hoping to help Barcelona take a giant leap towards qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Champions League when they go up against Manchester City tomorrow - and he'll do so in a rather fancy pair of new boots.
The Argentinian will strut his stuff around the Etihad Stadium in a custom, rainbow-inspired pair of Adidas F50's.
Messi will hope they don't halt his recent fine run of form in front of goal - he became the all-time leading Spanish club goalscorer thank to his brace against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.
And he'll also be hoping they can help him end an unwanted run; he's never scored against a Premier League side in England.
The 26-year-old Barcelona ace, who recently returned from injury, says he is looking forward to the Champions League getting back underway, and trying out his brand new boots.
It's great to play in the knock out stages of the UEFA Champions League and hopefully this season we can make it to the Final in Lisbon,' he said.
'I'm also very excited to show my fans my new adizero f50 Messi boots which I will debut for the first time in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night."
The Barcelona star's boots won't be the only debutant on Tuesday - the new Champions League ball will also make its first appearance ahead of the final in May.
'The ball is very beautiful,' four-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi continued.
'I would say that the UEFA Champions League ball is the most popular ball with the players.'
