The Argentine will be hoping to help his Barcelona side to a domestic and European treble with victory over Juventus in Berlin on Saturday

Lionel Messi is to wear specially designed boots in Saturday’s Champions Leaguefinal against Juventus in Berlin.

The new Messi15 boot will be debuted by the Argentine in European football’s showpiece game at the weekend, when Barcelona look to complete a domestic and European treble.

They have already secured La Liga glory, pipping El Clasico rivals Real Madrid to the title by two points at the end of the 38-game season.

Barca followed that up with victory over Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey, meaning they just need victory over the Old Lady to write their name into the history books.

Messi has struck 58 times in all competitions so far this term, and arguably scored the pick of the bunch in the cup final against Bilbao, picking the ball up on the right flank, jinking past four defenders and finishing low past the keeper.

Along with Neymar and Luis Suarez, the Barca frontline have combined for 120 goals between them, which tops the previous record of 118 set by Gonzalo Higuain, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2011-12.
