Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has disclosed three ways his side can win the UEFA Champions League trophy this year.

According to Messi, the three ways the Camp Nou club can win the Europe top-flight tournament this season is to be more consistent in games, be more reliable and not make mistakes as they did against Roma and Liverpool last two seasons.

Messi will hope to lead Quique SetiƩn's men to victory when they take on Napoli in the Champions League first leg of their last-16 tie on February 25.

Barcelona suffered dramatic defeats in the knockout stages in the last two seasons against Roma and Liverpool, respectively.

Messi is desperate to add a fifth Champions League title to his collection but believes the Blaugrana must keep believing in winning the tournament for the first time since 2015.

"We were so close to winning the UEFA Champions League last season, and we had a bright chance to win it, but we let it get away," Messi told Mundo Deportivo.

"It is my desire to win another Champions League this term.

"If we want to win it this year, then we have to be more consistent in games, be more reliable and not make mistakes as we did against Roma and Liverpool last two seasons, respectively."

Messi added: "We must keep believing, but right at the moment we still have a lot of things to improve."
