It seems like we write this every week but take a bow, Lionel Messi.

The Paris Saint-Germain ace has found the net once again after scoring the opener against Benfica in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The goal, which was brilliantly set up by Kylian Mbappé and Neymar, means the former Barcelona man has put yet another team to the sword.

Messi is now the first player to score against 40 different teams in the competition having already broken the record earlier this season.

Cristiano Ronaldo only has 38.
