Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, on Tuesday night made new record in his side’s 4-0 win against PSV Eindhoven in the UEFA Champions League Group B clash at the Camp Nou Stadium.
Messi’s hat-trick and a strike from Dembele ensured victory for the La Liga champions.
Messi scored the opener with a brilliant free-kick. He swung the ball over the wall, past goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet and into the top corner from outside 25 yards.
The goal means that Messi is just the second player to score in 14 consecutive Champions League seasons.
It’s also the eighth goal he’s scored from a direct free-kick in 2018, that’s a new record for the 31-year-old.
The Argentina captain has scored 25 direct free kick goals for Barca in the last five years, at least 10 more than any other player in the top 5 European leagues (all competitions).
