FIFA 18: Lionel Messi has just had thousands slashed off his Ultimate Team value

Is this the aftermath of the Champions League shock?

Lionel Messi may be the greatest footballer in the world – but even he looked out of sorts as Barcelona crashed out of the Champions League.

Despite the 30-year-old trying his best, Barca failed to get going and suffered a 3-0 loss against a brilliant Roma.

And it seems as though that performance has affected Messi’s price on FIFA 18 – with the Argentine seeing thousands slashed off his Ultimate Team value overnight.

The Argentine has seen his value dip over the past few months – but it dropped even more last night

Before the defeat, Messi cost 434,643 coins on Xbox and 466,871 on PS4. However, following the loss, he crashed down to 426,915 and 458,544 respectively.

If you’re thinking about picking up the Argentine, now could be the best time – as, if this trend is anything to go by, his value will jump up again when he puts in another brilliant performance.

His teammate Ousmane Dembélé only played five minutes against Roma, but is another star to see his value slump over the past 24 hours. He’s lost 10 per cent of his overall value.

Jordi Alba, who’s had a brilliant season with the club but failed to fire on all cylinders last night, has also seen his price cut.

If you’re thinking about adding a few Barca players to your Ultimate Team, now could be the perfect time.
