Benfica vs PSG: Messi sets new Champions League record

 


Paris Saint-Germain forward, Lionel Messi, set yet another record as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Benfica on Wednesday.

Messi opened the scoring in the first half with a trademark curling left-foot finish from the edge of the box.

The goal meant the 35-year-old became the first player in Champions League history to score goals against 40 different opponents.

The hosts levelled four minutes before the break, when an inviting in-swinging cross from Enzo Fernandez touched off PSG defender Danilo and into the net.

The result means PSG and Benfica remain level on points at the top of Group H after three matches.

The two teams will meet again in Paris on Tuesday. Juventus sit in third on three points after they got their first win of the competition at point-less Maccabi Haifa
