Barcelona beat Tottenham 4-2 in Champions League game at Wembley

After a so-so start to the season in Spain's La Liga, Lionel Messi and Co. put their doubters on notice on Wednesday in perhaps their toughest match of 2018-19 yet, traveling to London and easily dispatching Tottenham Hotspur, 4-2, in their Champions League group stage match at Wembley Stadium.

They pushed for a late victor but it was Messi that got the sixth goal of the game.

Tottenham were handicapped by injuries to Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen but Pochettino said: 'When you concede in less than two minutes, it changes completely everything.

Alba was set through after a defence-splitting pass from Lionel Messi but Lloris needlessly vacated his goal in a moment of madness to gift Coutinho the chance.

The introduction of Fernando Llorente for the final 10 minutes made clear that Spurs would go all out for an equaliser, and it was the visitors who looked the more likely to score the game's sixth goal before Messi struck for a second time. "I am going to say to the players: 'Enjoy playing against Messi.' This is the type of player that you are going to remember".

Barca are top of the group, following their 4-0 thumping of PSV Eindhoven.

Apart from Messi, Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic also got on the scoresheet for Barcelona, while Harry Kane and Erik Lamela did so for Spurs.

To be fair, this match said more about Barcelona than it did about Tottenham.

However, Messi sealed the win in the 89th minute as Luis Suarez's clever dummy left the Argentine one-on-one with Lloris, and he made no mistake from close range.

The report added that Gerard Pique criticized Messi for not facing the media about the club in Barcelona but only when he is in Argentina.

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

'If Moura scores the third goal we talk about heroes and the manager is the best in the world'.

"Hopefully we can produce that same energy", he said. The first half was hard for the team to start to play and feel confident in the way that we planned to play because of a few mistakes before the action that we conceded.
