Harry Kane of Tottenham scores against Barcelona

Lionel Messi was the star of the night as Barcelona defeated Tottenham 4-2 at Wembley. The loss was Spurs’ second consecutive Champions League defeat but the away side were incredible.

We didn’t make things easy for ourselves as Hugo Lloris, back from injury, helped the Catalans take the lead after rushing out and letting Philippe Coutinho score.

Ivan Rakitic made it two in the 28th minute with a great volley from outside the box. Messi then hit the post twice before Harry Kane came up with a smart finish to give Tottenham hope.

Messi, however, scored the third goal before Erik Lamela made it 3-2 in the 66th minute. Try as they might, Tottenham couldn’t get that equaliser and it was the little Argentine who got the final goal making it 4-2 on the night.

We didn’t have a number of first-team players due to injuries but the loss still stings as we gave it our all. The result left us third in the group as Inter Milan defeated PSV Eindhoven and we need a bit of a miracle to qualify for the knockout round.

Some fans were quick to blame Lloris and other players while some simply admitted that Barcelona were the better team on the night.
