Marc-Andre ter Stegen came up with a big save in the first half and, generally speaking, you can assume they'd still win plenty of games even if they conceded an average of one per game due to the prowess of their attack.

And in their last game, the Catalan giants were held 1-1 by Athletic Bilbao at Camp Nou in which Lionel Messi only came on in the second half and was unable to net the winning goal. Yes, Kane is still only 25 years old and has time on his side, but he will have his work cut out to get on Messi's level.

The home team were somehow still alive until stoppage time when Messi completed the scoring.

Messi produced a gorgeous ball to send Jordi Alba scampering clear down the left channel and, with Lloris having raced out and left his goal unmarked, the left-back squared for Coutinho to tuck away his first Barca goal in the Champions League. It was a positive performance from Spurs as the sides played out a goalless second-half.

Messi capped off a fine night with his second goal at the death to bring an end to a thrilling contest in the English capital.

After Tottenham striker Harry Kane pulled one back in the 52nd minute, Messi started and completed the move four minutes later that restored Barcelona's two-goal lead.

The Barcelona supporters sang his name, the scoreline was shaped by his feet and intelligence and Spurs now find themselves facing a battle to stay in the Champions League.

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

Tottenham's fatigue is largely down to the World Cup exertions of many of Pochettino's players, but also a result of the lack of new additions during the summer. "We had a few problems during the game but we managed to solve them". He has five goals in two UCL games this season, at a rate of one goal every 36 minutes.

A great start for Barcelona, what Lloris had in mind will remain a mystery.

"We played a good game and we had opportunities to extend the lead before and not have to suffer so much, but this is the Champions League". Victor Waynama and Harry Winks will look to control midfield, while Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela and Heung-Min Son support Harry Kane.

Spurs will have to take on Barcelona without Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen, who have joined Dele Alli on a growing casualty list.
