Neymar claim hat trick against Red Star as Messi damage Tottenham after scoring twice for Barcelona

Barcelona star Lionel Messi scored two times in Champions League game over Tottenham to claim a 4-2 victory at Wembley on Wednesday, while Brazil star Neymar hit a brilliant hat- trick in Paris Saint-Germain's 6-1 win against Red Star Belgrade. Philippe Coutinho scored after just two minutes for the Catalans, who arrived in London winless in three La Liga matches, with Ivan Rakitic scoring  a brilliant second.

Lionel Messi, who had earlier twice hit the post, then got on the scoresheet in between goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela, before the Argentina superstar grabbed his second late on to seal victory.
Barcelona head Group B on six points alongside Inter Milan, but Tottenham Hotspur  face a important double-header against PSV Eindhoven after failing to collect a point from their opening two matches.

Inter, the last Italian club to win the Champions League in 2010, again recovered from a goal down to beat PSV 2-1 in the Netherlands. Pablo Rosario magnificent strike put PSV ahead, but Inter levelled through Radja Nainggolan moments after visiting goalkeeper Samir Handanovic somehow escaped a red card for handling outside area. Mauro Icardi, whose late goal shocked Spurs a fortnight ago, was the hero again for Luciano Spalletti's men as he broke the defense to net the winner on the hour.

PSG return from their 3-2 defeat by Liverpool with a perfect attacking style over Red Star at the Parc des Princes. Neymar curled in a sublime free-kick to open the scoring on 20 minutes, quickly doubling his tally before Edinson Cavani, Angel di Maria and Kylian Mbappe also found the target. Former Germany international Marko Marin scored a consolation for Red Star, with Neymar completing his hat-trick from another stunning free-kick.
