There would be plenty of goals, even playing without Messi is worth playing against 10 men instead of 11 the entire game. The only way this can be worth is trying to injure the player in the lasts minutes of the first leg on a 2 legged.
But thats not the point, soccer is different, its against the rule to tackle the other players and hit him as hard as possible.
