Lionel Messi hits hat-trick as Barcelona trounce PSV Eind­hoven

La Semana - - FRONT PAGE | PORTADA -

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.
