Lionel Messi had said it was time Barcelona won the Champions League again and he played like a man on a mission Tuesday, scoring a hat-trick in a 4-0 demolition of PSV Eindhoven.Messi marked other milestones too. Three times, Messi has hit hat-tricks in his opening game.With a turbulent debut season, blighted by injury, behind him, Dembele looks like a player back on track. He won the free kick for Messi but his goal was a peach too.Turning between two PSV midfielders, he drove into the space and curved the ball into the bottom corner from 25 yards. Messi, Dembele, Coutinho and Luis Suarez too, caused havoc but four goals still flattered Barcelona.
