Barcelona gave Spurs a footballing lesson in their Champions League group stage clash.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men were chasing shadows for much of the game as Barcelona enjoyed themselves at Wembley.
Lionel Messi in particular was in the mood and helped put Spurs to the sword.
The talismanic No10 sealed what was an outrageous individual performance with two expertly taken goals.
The Argentine was denied twice by the same post in the second-half, however nothing was going to stop him from scoring.
He didn’t do it all himself though. Messi certainly has his team-mates to thank for his goals.
In particular the first one.
In the build-up to the captain’s strike, did we see the hierarchy of Barca’s attacking trio in action?
The ball being left not once, but twice for Messi to score is particularly pleasing.
It shows how both Coutinho and Suarez effectively know their place in the pecking order.
Coutinho falls behind Suarez, who then comes second to Messi.
We doubt any of them are going to argue with their captain.
It’s the food chain of the most devastating attack in Europe.
