Lionel Messi reached another career milestone last night as he helped Barcelona beat PSV 2-1 and confirm their place in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.
The Spanish Champions were under heavy pressure by the home side but ‘La Pulga’ stepped up to score a massive goal for Los Blaugranas before Gerard Pique second the second from a Messi assist.
Messi holds all goalscoring records for Barcelona, and this one will surely stand for a long time.
The Argentine ace gave Barcelona the lead against PSV right after the 60-minute mark, reassuring the team’s position as the best in Group B. What really stands out is that Messi accomplished yet one more record…one that Cristiano Ronaldo will no longer be able to steal away from him.
Messi scored his 106th goal for Barcelona in UEFA Champions League games, becoming the player with the most goals for a single club in tournament history. Cristiano Ronaldo had scored 105 during his time at Real Madrid, giving him the lead before this season began.
Added to that, Barcelona’s ace is also the top scorer in Group Stage games in this competition, with 66 goals.
Fans of Cristiano Ronaldo may not be happy with the latest feat of Lionel Messi as they will feel he set the new record because he has refused to change clubs and prove himself.
