Recently crowned FIFA Best Player of the Year Lionel Messi bagged another record in the Champions League after his contribution to Barcelona during the away game at Sparta Prague FC of Czech Republic.

The Barcelona skipper opened the scoring to set his team on the way to a slim 2-1 win at the home of Sparta Prague.

This means that he has now scored against 33 different teams on the Champions League stage thus equalling the record of retired Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez and Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

The win over Sparta Prague in their Matchday Three clash ensured that Barcelona have opened up a three-point lead at the top of Group F.

Barcelona started Matchday Three in second place behind Borussia Dortmund with the two teams on four points apiece but the German Bundesliga giants have been demoted from top spot to the third spot after the defeat at the San Siro on Wednesday night.

Borussia Dortmund were beaten 2-0 by hosts Inter Milan who are now up to second place in the Group F table behind leaders Barcelona.

Lautaro Martinez and Antonio Candreva scored the goals for Inter Milan either side of thy halftime interval as the Nerazzuri picked up their first win of the competition.
