Lionel Messi makes more history with stunning free kick

Lionel Messi makes more history with stunning free kick

Today it was three goals, and he unlocked the match with his free kick.

Going into tonight's game, Messi was tied with Ronaldo on seven UCL hat-tricks but he's moved ahead after doing the business tonight.

In football we have seen fights between opponents, between fans and even sometimes between disgruntled teammates. Then, Ousmane Dembele of France blasted home the 2nd from outside the box in the 75th minute.

To add more weight to the rumours, the Manchester United target has also added that Barcelona were keen on signing him this past summer, and were in talks with his agent.

Messi's goal-scoring explosion began in the 32nd minute on this stunning free kick. "I hope he goes on and on like this forever and scores many more goals".

'He is playing very well, ' Valverde said. "He's working hard, trying to help the team and is someone that is able to unbalance the opposition".


Visiting manager Mark van Bommel had no complaints with the defeat, but did feel the final result slightly flattered Barca.

"To be honest, we didn't expect to lose this heavily", he said. I don't think it was a foul.

The 31-year-old now has 14 consecutive goals in the Champions League and has become the second player to achieve the feat after Real Madrid legend Raul.

Indeed, Van Bommel has ordered them not to request Messi's shirt during the game.

Samuel Umtiti will be unavailable for Barcelona in their next Champions League match against Tottenham in London on October 3, after picking up a pair of yellow cards in the match and being sent off. It is true that he is the best in the world, although sometimes he does not win the Ballon d'Or.

Barça have started their season well, as they look to retain the La Liga title and regain the Champions League from their arch rivals, Real Madrid.
