When it comes to rating the top performers in the UEFA Champions League so far this season, Argentine superstar Lionel Messi is definitely in a class of his own with his scintillating displays for Barcelona since the competition began this term.

The diminutive playmaker has emerged with a serious mission to help La Blaugrana restore their continental dominance and his explosive performances in the competition have come at the right time to boost Barcelona's chances of winning the trophy.

Messi started his European campaign this term with an electrifying display, bagging an incredible hat-trick to help Barcelona secure a 4-0 victory against PSV Eindhoven in their opening fixture before following it up with another eye-catching performance against Tottenham Hotspur - a game in which he also struck an amazing brace.

The playmaker is currently leading the goalscoring charts with a whopping five goals in just two games and with such fantastic form, the Argentine is well on track to help La Blaugrana achieve a successful European outing this term.
