Pep Guardiola’s 200th match in charge of Barcelona was celebrated with a 4-0 win over Viktoria Plzen in Prague this evening, as the European champions qualified for the knockout stages. Lionel Messi scored another hat-trick and he broke the 200-goal barrier.

As the game started in Prague, it was already clear that Barcelona would be in charge of it. They should have been given a penalty on the 12th minute after a foul on Cesc Fabregas, but the referee didn’t think so. But after 10 minutes Marian Cisovsky fouled on Lionel Messi in the box and he was sent off. Messi opened the score with nice shot from the penalty spot.

After the goal Barcelona kept attacking Plzen and they had some great moments. Messi could score his second but the keeper played well and made a good save. But later Messi scored the second goal of the game. He played a nice one-two with Adriano and got the return pass in the box, from where he took a shot and Pavlik, the keeper could do nothing.

In the second half Barca had some more moments.  Fabregas nearly added a third with a delicate chip that drifted just wide and Messi’s free-kick was saved by the keeper. Later Barca had a great chance to score again, on the counterattack Thiago Alacantara flicked a header over Pavlik but onto the crossbar.

Fabregas made it 3-0 on 71 minutes with a rare headed goal. It was difficult for Fabregas to miss such was the quality of Isaac Cuenca’s cross from the right-hand side. Messi then completed his hat-trick with a well taken finish after rounding Pavlik. Barca’s defender Gerard Pique made a great back-heel pass to Messi who scored his hat-trick.

From now on, in all competitions the Argentine genius has 22 goals and 11 assists in just 17 games.

The match finished 4-0 and this means that Barcelona has qualified to the knock-out stage even though they still have to play two group games. So now Guardiola can let players have rest during champions league games and let them concentrate on domestic league.
