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

But Lionel Messi added more salt to the wound of the Spurs' fans when he netted the third goal for Barcelona in the 56th minute with Jordi Alba providing the assist.

The double strike against Spurs took his all-time Champions League goal tally to 108 - just 13 behind Cristiano Ronaldo - and he has now scored a remarkable 22 goals in 29 appearances against English clubs.

It was a near faultless performance from the Argentine but Pochettino was happy with how Spurs dealt with him in the first half although conceded he was hard to stop as the game developed.

'When you start a game at this level against Barcelona you can not concede these types of chances.

When the post twice denied Messi at the start of the second half it looked like he wouldn't come close to repeating his hat trick in the 4-0 victory over PSV Eindhoven in the group opener.

Barcelona were two up before the half-hour mark thanks to a sensational goal from Ivan Rakitic, who side-volleyed home an unstoppable shot after Coutinho had played the ball back to him at the top of the penalty area.

Three of those survivors were treated with drug therapy, but in Stabile's case it was too late to administer the medication. There have been no reports of other illnesses, and Naegleria fowleri infection does not spread from person to person.

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.

Messi was unsurprisingly pleased with the win, particularly after Barcelona's poor recent run.

"But for me the most important thing was that in the second half we played and we showed character".

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

Tottenham lost their opening European game at Inter Milan, leaving the Premier League side with no margin for error as they try to qualify for the knockout stages.

Tottenham will be looking to get their Champions League campaign back on track when they entertain Barcelona at Wembley this evening. We need to produce that same energy, the crowd were fantastic that night.

"It is a period when we are not having good luck with injuries", Pochettino said.
