Lionel Messi scored a superb goal in the PSV Eindhoven vs. Barcelona and has laid on another with FC Barcelona beating PSV Eindhoven by 2-1. They have secured the top spot in the Champions League’s Group B on Wednesday.
Messi has also offered his help for the defender Gerard Pique for scoring the second for the Spanish side. Now, they have thirteen points from 5 matches. The unassailable lead they have at top of the pool had to leave PSV at the bottom position.
Captain Luuk de Jong is known to have scored a late goal as a consolation for his home side as they tried to match up to FC Barcelona for most portion of the match at Philips Stadium. They have struck the woodwork about thrice in the first of the match alone and have also missed several other chances.
At the beginning of the match Gaston Pereiro, the PSV forward had latched onto a bad pass by Ivan Rakitic. However, his low drive had come back off the post and only a few minutes later he made a shot from 5 yards over the crossbar.
PSV has enjoyed some good fortune even if Barca had cleared 2 efforts off the line within the space of one minute with Arturo Vidal being the unfortunate player in both the occasions. He had taken effort from 12 yards and is known to have been cleared by Pablo Rosario prior to Angelino blocking the goal-bound header from the Chilean.
The visitors took a lead, all thanks to Messi’s magic as he showcased his superb performance.
