Lionel Messi made his way through a muddle of defenders to send a attractive goal into the back of the net for Barcelona on Wednesday at the 61st-minute mark of his team's Champions League match against PSV.

Messi has now scored six Champions League goals this season, moving him past Eden Dzeko and the Roma star's five finishes to lead the goalscoring chart through five rounds of group stage play. "In the first half, we lost a lot of easy balls".

Trump warns Brexit will harm UK-US trade
In an open letter to the nation written ahead of today's summit, May promised to bring the country together with her deal. The government was to hold a special briefing on the Brexit deal for Labour MPs - an unusual but not unprecedented move.

PSV Eindhoven did all it could to stifle Lionel Messi.

Pereiro had another huge chance in the 25th minute after finding space inside the Barcelona box, but the midfielder could only hook the ball under the crossbar.

The Argentine now needs to get 78 more goals for Barcelona so as to reach the total by Pele which is quite possible considering his scoring form up to now. PSV is 0-1-3, and while it would have liked to make the round of 16, the goal probably has shifted to trying to finish in third and enter the Europa League.

Ivan Rakitic just fired over the PSV goal in the 64th minute as Barcelona looked for a second, and it might have arrived through Ousmane Dembele had Zoet not made a smart stop in the 66th minute.

Malcom then turned a low Dembele cross wide of the post in the 73rd minute, before Bergwijn just missed the post down the other end during an open period of the match.
