LONDON — Even Lionel Messi and Neymar scoring couldn't prevent Barcelona losing for the first time this season.

Paris Saint-Germain, which has endured a subdued start to its French title defense, beat the Spanish league leaders 3-2 Tuesday in the Champions League in Group F.

It meant there was nothing for Xavi Hernandez to celebrate as the Barca midfielder overtook Raul Gonzalez by making a record 143rd Champions League appearance.

It was also a record-breaking night for the 38-year-old Francesco Totti, who became the oldest scorer in the competition's 22-year history as Roma drew 1-1 at Manchester City. Previous record-holder Ryan Giggs was 37 when he scored his last European goal in 2011 for Manchester United.

Also Tuesday, Bayern Munich won 1-0 at CSKA Moscow, and Chelsea beat Sporting Lisbon 1-0.
