Barcelona captain Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi marked his 150th European appearance for Barcelona with a goal as Ronald Koeman’s side saw off stubborn opponents Dynamo Kiev 2-1 in Wednesday’s entertaining Champions League clash.

The superstar forward scored from the penalty spot for the third Group G game running and Gerard Pique added a second, but only after Barca had been given a number of scares.

Returning goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen produced a handful of top-class saves, the best of the lot to keep out Vitaliy Buyalskiy’s free header in the first half, while Tomasz Kedziora had a goal ruled out.

Dynamo named a depleted squad due to a coronavirus outbreak in the camp and pushed their opponents all the way thanks to Viktor Tsygankov’s strike 15 minutes from time, though Barca held on to make it nine points from nine.
