Barcelona's possible Champions League last 16 opponents

  • Champions League all-time top scorers Lionel Messi added to his tally yesterday

This week Robert Lewandowski became only the seventh player in history to score 50 goals in the Champions League/European Cup.

In Group A Atletico and Dortmund are through but have yet to settle who is first and who is second.

"We had problems in the first 20 minutes", admitted Valverde.

"It is our style of play that we take a lot of risks", said Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde. It is only once again the confirmation that we can very well keep up with these teams'.

Luuk De Jong grabbed a consolation for the home side eight minutes from time but they remain on a single point from their five group games to date.

PSV unlucky not to go into the break at least one goal in front after twice hitting the frame of the goal. De Jong is hard to defend against and we suffered.


PSV are off to a flawless start in the Eredivisie and are gaining consideration as one of the great Eredivisie teams in history. PSV is 0-1-3, and while it would have liked to make the round of 16, the goal probably has shifted to trying to finish in third and enter the Europa League.

The No.10 has not featured in the middle of the attack since the start of the Luis Enrique era, before he switched places with Suarez.

The Argentine is also the top scorer in the current edition of the Champions League, having bagged six goals from five games thus far, moving ahead of Edin Dzeko who has netted five times.

It led to a nervy end to the match for Barca, and Denzel Dumfries had a strong injury-time penalty shout turned down after Clement Lenglet appeared to catch him in the box with a clumsy challenge.

The victory in the Netherlands was Barcelona's fourth successive against Dutch opposition and ensured that it ended their streak of three winless matches.

Here's a detailed look at every player's performance on the night.
