Lionel Messi conjured up another magical goal against PSV on Wednesday night, as Barcelona secured a 2-1 win to top the group.

The goal was the Barcelona captain’s 106th in the Champions League, meaning no-one else has scored as many for a single club in the competition.

The goal takes him past Cristiano Ronaldo, who managed 105 for Real Madrid, but obviously is now at Juventus.

Messi’s goal also puts him even further out in front when it comes to Barcelona’s list of Champions League goalscorers.

And if that were not enough, he’s also outscoring everyone else in the competition so far this season.

Barcelona face Tottenham in their final group fixture at the Camp Nou on December 11. It should make for a pretty interesting game, Barcelona have nothing to play for, but Spurs can qualify with a win.
