Barcelona vs PSV Eindhoven: Messi hat-trick sinks PSV

Lionel Messi was on a rampage against PSV scoring the first hat-trick in the 2018 champion league. In a decisive 4 – 0 victory against PSV Eindhoven.

The Barcelona Superstar and 4 times world footballer of the year Lionel Messi scored three times in the match. Messi was up and running, his sumptuous free-kick from the edge of the area nestling in the top corner, exactly where it was intended.

Messi would have his second and third before the end of the Barcelona vs PSV Eindhoven, and a record eighth Champions League treble, but the game was up by then thanks to a superb strike from the excellent Ousmane Dembele.

Messi stands over the ball, takes a short run up and casually curls it into the top-right corner past the outstretched arms of Zoet. Nothing the keeper could do. Just a brilliant, well-placed attempt by the master.

 Messi receives a lob from Rakitić while squeezing in past three defenders and slots home his second goal.
