[Teams] Tottenham vs Barcelona: Confirmed Line-Ups From Wembley

Spurs did manage to carve out a couple chances as the half went on, but the LaLiga outfit did well to preserve their lead as they headed into the break. Messi aimed for the same post he had hit twice earlier, and this time found the side netting. He's definitely set the standard for the rest of us and he still is.

Back at the scene of his 2011 Champions League final triumph, Lionel Messi delivered another display of artistry at Wembley Stadium.

The response to the video - which was widely shared in a tweet by The Sun's royal correspondent, Emily Andrews - has been varied. Apart from her gorgeous appearance, Markle's recent outing also confirmed that she is not pregnant with Harry's first child.

Messi put matters to rest just before full-time after a bad giveaway from the Tottenham defence left the Barca talisman alone with only Lloris to beat and he made no mistake, tucking the ball into the bottom right corner to seal the points.

That's a pretty simple lesson and one that many teams have learned in the past, so it's very surprising that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino allowed his players to grant so much green grass - well, actually brown dust considering the shocking state of the Wembley "turf" - to the visitors. He has five goals in two UCL games this season, at a rate of one goal every 36 minutes.

"We still need to play four games and we are going to have it in our hands to be or not in the next stage", said Pochettino.

"We got off to a great start last season, beating Dortmund at home".

Draws with Girona and Athletic Bilbao either side of a shock defeat by Leganes were partly caused by Valverde prioritising the Champions League with Messi left on the bench at the weekend. It will be tough because they are must-win games. Victor Waynama and Harry Winks will look to control midfield, while Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela and Heung-Min Son support Harry Kane.

And that failure to invest bit hard against Barca, with key men such as Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen, Christian Eriksen and Moussa Dembele all missing and Pochettino unable to call on anything like their quality as replacements. Previously reliable, Lloris errors are now far too regular.
