Barcelona 4-0 PSV Eindhoven

Barcelona 4-0 PSV Eindhoven

Messi's goal-scoring explosion began in the 32nd minute on this stunning free kick.

Barcelona's Argentinian forward Lionel Messi (R) kicks the ball during the UEFA Champions' League group B football match FC Barcelona against PSV Eindhoven at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on September 18, 2018.

"Today he scored three goals but his first strike opened the game up".

Ivan Rakitic lifted a delicate ball over the PSV backline that Messi dispatched with a fine first-time finish on the run to make it 3-0 and, after Umtiti received a second yellow for impeding Hirving Lozano, he latched on to a clever Suarez flick and emphatically capped off his treble.

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde has heaped further praise on Lionel Messi following the striker's hat-trick against PSV Eindhoven this afternoon.

He said: "There's not only Messi in this Barcelona". As long as we win the game they can do what they want.

But Barca's second did eventually come in similarly superb style.

Socceroos defenders Trent Sainsbury and Aziz Behich were unused substitutes for PSV.

Mauro Icardi's superb volley levelled the scores in the 86th minute and Matias Vecino headed a stoppage-time victor at the San Siro.

Liverpool top Group C after substitute Roberto Firmino struck a brilliant stoppage-time victor in their 3-2 defeat of Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield.

Dembele would double the hosts' lead in the 74th minute, scoring on a brilliant individual play.

Philippe Coutinho played in his first Champions League match for Barcelona this evening after being ineligible towards the second half of last season following his transfer from Liverpool, and the Brazilian playmaker thrived on his debut.

"When he stops playing it will be hard to find someone like him".

There were dramatic late goals around Europe, including for Inter Milan against Tottenham Hotspur, and winning starts for several of the leading contenders, with Atletico Madrid battling back to beat Monaco.

Borussia Dortmund's Christian Pulisic came off the bench to grab a late victor in a 1-0 victory at Club Brugge.
