VIDEO: Messi's record 8th Champions League hat-trick against PSV
Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi set a hat-trick record in the UEFA Champions League during his side's 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday night in the UEFA Champions League.
Before Tuesday’s fixture against PSV, Messi was level with Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo on seven Champions League hat-tricks.
However, Messi's free-scoring feat means the 31-year-old has more hat-tricks than any other player in the history of the UEFA Champions League.
Messi opened the scoring with a free-kick in the 32nd minute, before adding his second with 13 minutes to go. He then capped his display with a third strike three minutes from time.
