Messi breaks Champions League record with Dortmund strike

By Dejan Kalinic
Messi and Suarez were on the scoresheet

Barcelona, November 28: Barcelona star Lionel Messi broke a Champions League record by scoring against a 34th different team with his goal at home to Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday (November 27).

Messi doubled Barca's lead after setting up Luis Suarez's opener in the Group F clash at Camp Nou.

Dortmund became the 34th side against which Messi has scored in the Champions League as the Argentina forward surpassed a mark he had shared with Cristiano Ronaldo and Raul.

Messi received a neat pass from Suarez before calmly converting past Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki in the 33rd minute.

The 32-year-old only equalled Ronaldo and Raul last month, when he netted in a 2-1 win over Slavia Prague.

Messi also set up Antoine Griezmann for Barcelona's third as they sealed qualification.
