Champions League round-up
21 October 2016 @ 09:31

Spanish sides scored four wins out of four in their respective Champions League clashes this week, with Barcelona thrashing Manchester City 4-0 and Real Madrid putting five past Legia Warsaw.

Lionel Messi put in a stellar performance, scoring a hat-trick to help his side beat Manchester City 4-0 on Pep Guardiola's return to the Camp Nou on Wednesday night.

City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo was sent off in the 53rd minute for a deliberate handball and from then on Barça ruthlessly made their numerical advantage count as Messi struck twice in eight minutes to notch up his 37th club treble.

Jeremy Mathieu's dismissal for two bookable offences failed to derail the hosts as Neymar, having missed an 87th-minute penalty, atoned with Barça's fourth a minute from time.

Victory moves Barça five points clear of second-placed City in Group C.
