Champions League: Messi sets new record, overtakes Cristiano Ronaldo

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi celebrates after scoring the first of his three goals

The team won by 4-0 and with this, Lionel Messi netted an eighth hat-trick in the Champions League.

'We always ask about Messi, ' said one reporter. "But he makes the extraordinary routine". In doing so, he darted to the summit of the Champions League top scorers' list thins season and set yet another record in European soccer's elite competition.

In football we have seen fights between opponents, between fans and even sometimes between disgruntled teammates. As a player in La Liga, I don't remember anyone like him.

The first for dissent after a foul on the halfway line and the second for a cynical block on the flying Lozano with Barcelona three goals up.

Let us know in the comments.

"He has an incredible left foot", Ivan Rakitic said. Messi, however, continued his dream run by scoring goals at 77 and 87 minute.

Have you ever watched Lionel Messi line up to take a free kick, and not think that he's definitely going to score? But Messi - who else? - would add two more goals before the match was over.

'He is playing very well, ' Valverde said. "He's got that continuity in the side now, which is helping, but he has earned that". I spoke to [Valverde] about that and we agreed.

"Leo is the best in the world. It's odd to me that he does not win the Ballon d'Or every single year".

And Rakitic is aware of the challenges that await in the competition as he acknowledged the need for his side to keep improving on their win over PSV if they are to come out victorious in the Spanish capital come May.

At Anfield, Mbappe scored his 11th Champions League goal since he made his debut in the tournament during the 2016-17 season.

Messi's first hat-trick in the Champions League was arguably his most memorable as he stole the show with a four-goal haul against Arsenal in the 2009-10 quarter-final second leg at the Camp Nou.

In the same group, Christian Pulisic celebrated his 20th birthday in style by scoring a fortunate late goal that gave Borussia Dortmund a 1-0 win away to Club Brugge.
