Barcelona 4-0 PSV: Lionel Messi Sets Two New Champions League Records

Sep 19, 2018

Lionel Messi has set two new records after inspiring Barcelona to a 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven.

The Argentine scored a beautiful free-kick in the first half and then completed his hat trick with two goals in the second half.

Ousmane Dembele was on the Scoresheet as Barcelona started with the best possible result in Group B.

However, Messi's 31st minute free-kick ensured that hebecame only the second player in historyto score in 14 consecutive Champions League seasons.

He now shares the record with former Real Madrid striker Raul.

At 31-years-old it’s almost a certainty that Messi will extend the record next year.

This wasn’t the last record Messi would stamp his name on during the match.

After scoring his Hat-trick, Messi has now scored the most trebles in the Champions League history.

That was his eighth hat-trick in the Champions League.

He was level with Cristiano Ronaldo on seven before Tuesday’s proceedings.

The one record that may elude Messi for now is the all-time Champions League record which is currently held by Ronaldo with 120 goals.
