Champions League highlights and recap

Jan Vertonghen is one of several absentees for Spurs

Not one. In the second half, with a lot of space, it is unbelievable how he runs.

A gallant Tottenham side, missing the likes of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen, nearly levelled when Lucas Moura's shot deflected wide but Messi ended their resistance after again being picked out by Alba.

Messi scored twice in an excellent attacking display from the Spanish champions, who were twice pegged back in a breathless second half.

"When you play at this level, you can't concede these type of chances". "It's so hard after this for the team to feel confident to play".

Most of Barcelona's team are household names but one you may be less familiar with is Arthur.

"We didn't concede one chance to Messi in the first half".

"If we can go out there and press on the front foot, show aggression, get in the opposition's face and make them scared, then why can't we go to the Nou Camp and get a result, and why can't we qualify for the next round of the Champions League?". Move on because in the first half we conceded in the first minute and we can not talk about topics.




Ivan Rakitic said Lionel Messi is different to other players as he lauded the Barcelona superstar following his mesmerising display against Tottenham in the Champions League.

"It was 4-2 of course for Barcelona but the team did everything and I feel so proud about their performance".

"I am not going to try to find a solution", Pochettino said on Tuesday. My dad is always asking me for his shirt. Nothing, because the period the grass needs to grow is more time than we gave because the boxing was here [just over] 10 days ago.

Tottenham have collected zero points from their opening two Champions League fixtures this season, with Barca and Inter both on six.

With Spurs travelling to Camp Nou for their final group game in December, anything but two victories in those games, and another win at home to Inter Milan, would leave them needing to win in Barcelona to have any hope of making it into the round of 16.

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. "We still think the same - that all is possible".
