Virgil van Dijk named Lionel Messi as his toughest opponent as the Liverpool defender opened up on a number of topics as part of a Twitter question and answer session, the sportsbay reports.

The Liverpool defender singled out the two Argentinian stars as his biggest tests

Van Dijk faced off with Messi in last season’s Champions League semi-finals, as Liverpool famously overcame a 3-0 first-leg deficit by triumphing 4-0 at Anfield to book a spot in the Champions League final.

It was Messi that provided two goals in the 3-0 win in Barcelona, with the Argentine finishing Barca’s second after a Luis Suarez shot struck the crossbar.

Moments later, he added Barca’s third, scoring a magnificent free-kick to seal the advantage for the Spanish side.

Although they would not hold onto that advantage, as Liverpool went on to prevail in the Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspurs
