Marca's headline about Lionel Messi after Tottenham 2-4 Barcelona speaks volumes

Tension at Camp Nou as Lionel Messi's relationship with 1 Barcelona star breakdown

Lionel Messi inspired Barcelona to an enthralling victory over Tottenham at Wembley which condemned the English side to a second Champions League defeat from two games this season.

Messi is on a hot streak in the competition: He hit a hat trick in a 4-0 win against PSV Eindhoven on Matchday 1 and, but for the width of a goal post on two occasions in this game, he would have walked off the pitch with four in London.

Spurs twice rallied, making it 2-1 and then 3-2 and almost equalising with a deflected Lucas Moura effort, but Lionel Messi's 90th-minute strike - his second goal of the night - ended Spurs' hopes. "Bottom corner. There was a similar goal he scored in the Premier League as well".

Asked if she was nervous to be around so many world-class players, she said: "I wasn't nervous but I knew Harry Kane and Lionel Messi were right behind me".

Let that sink in for a minute, Lionel Messi has scored more goals in the Champions League than a team which broke the goal-scoring record for England last season.

"I think in the first half we probably showed them a little bit too much respect", Winks said.

Philippe Coutinho had the visitors ahead inside of two minutes, smashing a half-volley into an empty net after Hugo Lloris was caught out trying to chase down a Messi through ball.

"I feel blessed that I was in this stadium live to be able to watch him". Busquets and Rakitic are 30; Messi and Suarez are 31.

The former England star claimed Messi's decision making is better than anyone else now playing. I have not seen him in a long time.

However, Messi would get his second of the game, slotting home following an initial poor pass from Kieran Trippier. We were handicapped against Barcelona after conceding after one minute.

Kane did his job, as he usually does, in holding the ball up and trying to bring others into play, but when he dropped deeper to lay balls off, neither Eriksen or Alli were there to link up with him.

Messi and Co. have been written off by many already, and after going three years without winning the Champions League, they will have to clean up their defensive deficiencies to have a real chance of winning it all in Madrid in May.
