Messi: The Champions League is the icing on the cake

Kane penalty

Yet Tottenham fell behind after returning goalkeeper Lloris, playing for the first time since being convicted for drink driving, made an very bad mistake for Barcelona's opener by rushing out of his goal while full-back Kieran Trippier was also deceived by Messi's brilliant pass in the build-up.

"When you concede in less than two minutes, it changes completely everything".

The double strike against Spurs took his all-time Champions League goal tally to 108 - just 13 behind Cristiano Ronaldo - and he has now scored a remarkable 22 goals in 29 appearances against English clubs.

The relationship between Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique at Barcelona is reportedly on an all time low this season after the last two games played by the reigning Spanish champions.

Barcelona won its first Champions League match, beating PSV Eindhoven 4-0 thanks to a Lionel Messi hat trick; however, Barca's last three league matches have either ended in a loss or a draw.

"I think our players were heroes because to chase the game, playing against Messi, Suarez, Coutinho and company, and be competitive in the second half".

In issuing the flash flood watch , officials also said to be wary of flooding in burn scars from recent wildfires. Some areas of Los Angeles County could see up to an inch of rain, according to the National Weather Service .

Messi had the final say, though, as he tucked home from 10 yards out in the final minute after Suarez dummied Alba's cross from the left to put the Argentine into space.

The Catalan giants went on to boss proceedings in the first half and Clement Lenglet managed to get on the end of Messi's free-kick from the left in the 15th minute, but failed to keep his header down.

MESSI was in spectacular fashion and every where on the pitch for Barcelona.

Barcelona came into the contest winless in three straight games in their domestic league, this after losing just once in La Liga last season. If Lucas Moura scored the third goal sure we talk about we are heroes and the manager is the best in the world.

'We are a team that needed to win and to concede [so early] the plan was destroyed.

"Hopefully we can produce that same energy", he said. The crowd were fantastic and that's what we need tomorrow night. It's hard to assess the first half because it was hard for the team to restart and to feel confident.
