The fourth was absolute master-class in football, with all ten outfield players contributing to the over twenty passes in the build-up.

It was also a Barça debut in the competition for Philippe Coutinho, Arthur, Clement Lenglet and Arturo Vidal.

A day like that deserves to be enjoyed to the full, and luckily our cameras were on hand to help you do just that. Enjoy these great behind-the-scenes images from the start of what we hope is going to Barcelona’s triumphant march across Europe this season!

The game began with two early chances for PSV, but Tenas was equal to them both. Lucas de Vega put the hosts ahead following Barça’s first real move of note, and thanks to a great pass from Nils on the left.

That opened up proceedings and allowed a youthful Blaugrana side to dictate the pace. In the 22nd minute, Barça almost doubled the lead, but Van Dorp stopped Konrad's shot.

It was then PSV’s turn to press with Tenas working overtime to keep the Dutch team at bay. The goalkeeper was very brave in the one on one’s and denied PSV with a spectacular save before the break.

Tot el camp
és un clam
som la gent blaugrana
Tant se val d'on venim
si del sud o del nord
ara estem d'acord, ara estem d'acord,
una bandera ens agermana.
Blaugrana al vent
un crit valent
tenim un nom el sap tothom:
Barça, Barça, Baaarça!

Jugadors, seguidors,
tots units fem força.
Son molt anys plens d'afanys,
son molts gols que hem cridat
i s'ha demostrat, i s'ha demostrat,
que mai ningu no ens podrà torcer.
Blaugrana al vent
un crit valent
tenim un nom el sap tothom:
Barça, Barça, Baaarça!

Mirando a la temporada actual destaca a uno de sus mejores socios en el campo: "Jordi Alba me conoce a la perfección, sabe cuándo le daré el pase sin mirarlo, tengo una conexión especial con él". Por otro lado destaca el trabajo de su gran amigo Suárez: "Me aporta mucho a mí y al resto del equipo, es el primero en presionar y encomienda fuerza a todo el equipo".

Personalmente cree que ha crecido mucho a la hora de hacer asistencias y lanzar faltas y le gustaría mejorar algún aspecto: "¿Una espina clavada? Me gustaría ser mucho más efectivo en los penaltis. No es lo mismo entrenarlos que chutar en un partido". Finalmente, Messi también ha recalcado: "Me gusta ver fútbol, ​​miro todo lo que haya. Intento seguir más nuestra Liga y el fútbol argentino, pero sigo un poco de todo".
