Lionel Messi has set a new Champions League record with his hat-trick against Manchester City on Wednesday evening.
The Argentine struck three times to sink Pep Guardiola’s side at Camp Nou, while City were reduced to 10 men in the second half following the dismissal of Claudio Bravo.
But Messi’s treble now means that he has scored 50 goals at home in the Champions League, more than any other player in the competition’s history.
