I use the following approach: due to modifies nouns and usually is used after the verb "to be" because of modifies a verb. If you can ask a "Why?" question to your sentence and reply without a complete sentence, then you because of
In your examples every sentence should be written with "because of" Why did Barcelona win the football match? Because of Messi's great performance. Because of the presence of great players.
I would use due to if the sentences were written like The football match was won due to Messi's great performance/ due to the presence of great players.
