Lionel Messi surprised pretty much no one by once again producing a brilliant goal on the big stage as Barcelona beat PSV in the Champions League on Matchday Five in the Netherlands.
Barely a Barcelona game goes by when Lionel Messi isn't the talk of the town. Even when the club's all time top goalscorer doesn't get on the pitch he's big news.
And by now it's not exactly a surprise why. The five time Ballon d'Or winner can do pretty much everything with a football to perfection.
At the weekend he made a fool of both Antoine Griezmann and Filipe Luis as Barca drew 1-1 with Atletico Madrid in Spain's capital, not exactly two bad players but they were utterly embarrassed.
On Wednesday night PSV defender's were able to feel a lot of empathy for the Atleti pair, as well as pretty much everyone else who's come up against the Argentine maestro, in the Champions League.
Barca won the game 2-1 in Eindhoven and Messi's goal was the highlight of the game. He picked the ball up deep, gave it to Ousmane Dembele who returned it in the box, and Messi then bamboozled the Dutch defence before scoring:

You know I don't like to mention Messi too often but he does play a game of which the rest of us are not familiar: pic.twitter.com/56zQLv5Rgq- Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) November 28, 2018
My word. Messi has just scored another goal that defies belief.- michael owen (@themichaelowen) November 28, 2018
The fact that he does these things so often should not detract from how utterly incredible they are and he is. Messi, just unbelievable. Inconceivable. Unstoppable. Wonderful.- Ben Hayward (@bghayward) November 28, 2018

But that goal was all Messi.
As well as scoring it's not exactly a rare occurrence when Messi breaks a record of some sought and his brilliant goal broke yet another one.
The strike against PSV took him to 106 Champions League goals for Barcelona meaning he's scored more for a single club in the competition than any other man, beating Cristiano Ronaldo's 105 for Real Madrid.
No one's surprised, but it doesn't make it any less special.
