The Argentinian star helped Barca defeat PSV Eindhoven 4-0 at the Nou Camp in the first round of the group stage yesterday, September 18.

Goals: Messi 32′, 77′, 87′, Dembele 75′

The score of 4-0 does not closely reflect the reality on the field, where PSV’s performance was not too inferior to Barca’s.

PSV could have gone ahead if Pereiro’s volley had gone lower.

Unable to suppress PSV’s dynamic and youthful playing style, Barca can only advance the ball with the experience of seasoned players like Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Ivan Rakitic.

In the midst of a balanced match in terms of attack situations, Messi’s opening goal was almost decisive.

After taking the lead, the home team played the ball open and created more opportunities.
