Sergio Busquets Finished Barcelona Vs Spurs With 100% Pass Completion

"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". It's hard to assess the first half because it was hard for the team to restart and to feel confident. After Messi had hit the post for the second time in quick succession, Spurs broke quickly, working the ball to Erik Lamela, who played in Kane.

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.

However, while those moments encapsulated Messi's individual brilliance, his ruthless streak was showcased shortly afterward when, with the score 2-1, he finished off a move of beauty to restore Barcelona's two-goal advantage.

As for MESSI's two goals, the first one was a genius goal.

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. It's so tough. When you play at this level you can't concede these type of chances. Then Davinson Sanchez's cheap giveaway led to Coutinho keeping the ball in play as Rakitic hammered home a stupendous volley which will live long in the memory. Sure, they missed the pace and dominant aerial ability of the suspended Samuel Umtiti as Harry Kane in particular bullied their back line in the second half.

Le'Veon Bell contends he still wants to retire a Steeler
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that the Steelers are now actively shopping Bell , though a deal would be tricky. Bell told ESPN that he still hopes to play with the Steelers beyond this season.

Mauricio Pochettino's side lost their opening group stage game away at Inter and are under pressure to make sure they avoid defeat against Barcelona tonight.

Losing Eriksen, Alli, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen through injury ahead of such a big night was a cruel blow for Pochettino.

Thirty-two seconds after the second of those let-offs for Spurs, Kane dragged them right back into the match with his curled finish past Ter Stegen after working the ball onto his right foot. Previously reliable, Lloris errors are now far too regular.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen made a great save to keep out a Son Heung-min cross that sharply deflected off Gerard Pique, who was making his 100th Champions League appearance, and Messi hit the post twice in five minutes after the restart before Kane gave Spurs a lifeline.
