Messi scores attractive UCL goal for Barcelona

Messi hit a sizzling strike v PSV

After scoring a brilliant opener Messi mishit a set-piece that was poked in by Pique in the second half of Barca's 2-1 victory in the Champions League on Wednesday.

By scoring Barcelona's opening goal in the 61st minute, Messi moved to 106 career Champions League goals for Barcelona.

Another thing is that MESSI has now scored 66 goals in the group stages of the Champions League in 66 matches.

In a bright start, PSV forward Gaston Pereiro latched onto a poor pass from Ivan Rakitic but his low drive came back off the post, and minutes later he shot over the crossbar from five yards.

Lionel Messi is at it again.

Captain Luuk de Jong scored a late consolation for the home side as they matched Barcelona for much of the contest at the Philips Stadion, striking the woodwork three times in the first half alone and missing a number of other chances.

Best was called back to the stage to speak on behalf of Sexton who had lost his voice because of a throat infection. Upon receiving the award, Dyantyi described his year as "more than a roller-coaster".

PSV had some good fortune, too, as Barca had two efforts cleared off the line within the space of a minute, Arturo Vidal the unlucky player on both occasions. PSV is 0-1-3, and while it would have liked to make the round of 16, the goal probably has shifted to trying to finish in third and enter the Europa League.

Barcelona has won its Champions League group a record 20 times, and only a dramatic reversal of form will keep the Blaugrana from adding to its prestigious mark.

He then turned supplier for Barcelona's second, taking a free kick that Gerard Pique deflected past Zoet.

Here's how to watch PSV versus Barcelona online.

Marc Andre Ter Stegen's long wait for a clean sheet extended for a further 90 minutes at least after he failed to stop de Jong's goal for the home side.

Former Real Madrid and Spain boss Vicente del Bosque has expressed his surprise at rumours of Barcelona star Lionel Messi's absence from the Ballon d'Or top three, stating that the award loses its value if the Argentine ace is not included.
