Just nine minutes after his goal, Messi came up with an assist to Gerard Pique, who redirected Messi's free kick home for the eventual game-winning goal.

Don't expect history to give way when FC Barcelona takes on PSV Eindhoven.

In Group A Atletico and Dortmund are through but have yet to settle who is first and who is second. This latest strike against PSV was his 106th in the competition which is the most any man has ever scored for once club, surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo's previous record of 105 for Real Madrid.

PSV can not progress in the Champions League after only picking up a single point from their opening four games.

Barcelona had a lot of the ball in the first 15 minutes, but it was PSV that were having the better moments in the final third, with Hirving Lozano and Steven Bergwijn both causing problems in wide positions.

PSV unlucky not to go into the break at least one goal in front after twice hitting the frame of the goal.

Mark van Bommel is hopeful of a victory against Barcelona on Wednesday which would keep PSV's hopes of a Europa League place alive.

PSV coach Mark van Bommel - himself a Champions League victor with Barcelona in his playing days - started with his regular lineup that has won all 13 of its Dutch Eredivisie matches this season but failed to register a victory in the Champions League.

The two still remain atop the competition's all-time scoring charts with Ronaldo now on 121 Champions League goals to lead the way.

The No.10 has not featured in the middle of the attack since the start of the Luis Enrique era, before he switched places with Suarez.

Messi made sure Barcelona won anyway.

PSV had a lifeline in the 83rd minute, however, when De Jong headed an Angelino cross into the bottom corner to continue his excellent run of form.

The missing players may have contributed to the sometimes disjointed performance.
