Lionel Messi stars as Barcelona thump PSV: 3 takeaways

Inter Target Lozano Reveals Dream Of Playing For Barcelona

However, this is a man with the potential to become the best player in the world.

Here's to lots more Messi magic in the Champions League this season.

Messi and Barcelona are looking to break Spanish rival Real's three-year stranglehold on the Champions League trophy this season.

Ivan Rakitic lifted a delicate ball over the PSV backline that Messi dispatched with a fine first-time finish on the run to make it 3-0 and, after Umtiti received a second yellow for impeding Hirving Lozano, he latched on to a clever Suarez flick and emphatically capped off his treble. "Practising them is not the same as taking them in a game", said Messi.

Mauro Icardi's superb volley levelled the scores in the 86th minute and Matias Vecino headed a stoppage-time victor at the San Siro.

The EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier has said he is ready to come forward with an "improved" proposal on the Irish border. Unfortunately, a no deal scenario is still quite possible.

In the group's other match, Mauro Icardi volleyed in a superb equaliser for Inter against Tottenham and Matias Vecino headed in the victor in injury time to complete a 2-1 win for the Italian club on its return to Europe's top competition. Emerging from La Masia as a fledgeling forward with an outrageously deadly left-boot, Messi would have been low on the free-kick pecking order while the likes of Ronaldinho and Deco were lighting up the Camp Nou during his formative years.

His mistake in stoppage time proved costly for his club, though.

PSG was down 2-0 after 36 minutes following goals from Daniel Sturridge and Milner but managed to fight back as Thomas Meunier pulled one back before Mbappe leveled.

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. There was no surprise over who was going to take it because the rest of the players deferred to the Argentine. "I know they will ask him for the shirt, but they shouldn't do it at halftime".

Diego Costa equalised for visitors on 31 minutes before defender Jose Gimenez headed home the victor from a corner on the stroke of halftime.
