Andres Iniesta won't be able to take to the field himself when Barcelona face Sevilla in the second leg of the Supercopa de Espana this Wednesday, leaving Lionel Messi with the prestige of lifting his first trophy should Luis Enrique's men triumph.
Even though he may have already won every trophy that there is to win with the Blaugrana as a player, the Argentine will be looking to make it his seventh Supercopa since the 2004/2005 season, but this one could be special with Messi able to get his hands on the prize first.
While Spain's most decorated player sits out injured, meaning that he is unable to play an active role in winning what would be his 32nd title during his illustrious career, the armband passes over to their talismanic frontman.
Messi's name is already mentioned alongside the likes of Johan Cruyff in terms of changing Barcelona's history, with the Argentina international helping the Catalan giants reach their most powerful heights since debuting against Espanyol in October 2004.
The 28 trophies won by the attacker puts Barcelona out in front as the best club side in Europe during the current era, with only Bayern Munich able to remotely challenge their silverware haul.
