Lionel Messi hits hat-trick as Barcelona trounce PSV Eindhoven
Lionel Messi scored the eighth Champions League hat-trick of his career as 10-man Barcelona eased to an emphatic 4-0 victory over PSV Eindhoven in Group B.
The Argentinian was once again in imperious form as the hosts overcame a low-key start to cruise past their Dutch opponents, with Ousmane Dembélé also getting on the scoresheet.
The only blot on another great night at the Camp Nou was Samuel Umtiti’s 79th-minute sending-off for a second bookable offence after a foul on PSV winger Hirving Lozano. By that point Messi’s magic had already decided the contest, but PSV will be left to rue their failure to make more of a bright start.
