FC Barcelona Star Responds To Andres Iniesta Comparisons

The Catalans and their players including Leo Messi and Luis Suarez have highlighted their hunger to win the Champions League after watching arch rivals Real Madrid lift the prestigious accolade on three consecutive occasions.

And this surprising statistic has left many scratching their heads including Brazilian playmaker Coutinho, who could not explain Messi's drought in the Champions League.

Barcelona's talisman is one of the best free-kick takers in the world, and he's delivered once again with an absolutely stunning strike against PSV.

The Spanish champions began to demonstrate the gulf in class as the second half progressed and they doubled their lead in the 75th minute through a lovely curling strike from in-form French forward Ousmane Dembele, who scored a fifth goal from sixth games in all competitions this season.

"Messi, like all of us, is really motivated to win big things [this season] and the Champions League is one of them".

"My goal is to improve at everything and if I want to be like Andres Iniesta, I have to improve a lot".

Messi, now Barcelona's captain after Andres Iniesta's departure, looks to have put another disappointing World Cup behind him - he scored once as Argentina lost in the last 16 in Russian Federation. After firing PSV to the Eredivisie title with 17 goals in 2017/18, Lozano has started this season like a man on fire, too. But Messi managed just six goals in last season's tournament.
