The little genius was inches away from putting the game to bed two minutes into the second half as he hit the base of the left post with a guided shot from the edge of the box, and Messi was denied by the woodwork again on 51 minutes with a carbon copy of his previous effort. What Messi had in skill, Kane matched in grit.
For Barcelona's opening goal, MESSI played a ball from deep in midfield which cut through the Tottenham back line to find Jordi ALBA. It was a positive performance from Spurs as the sides played out a goalless second-half.

Messi's response according to the report was to attack Barcelona's defense stating that they are conceding too many goals this season.
Perhaps he is becoming to Barcelona what Karim Benzema is for Real Madrid - a tireless centre-forward whose worth to the team is far greater than what he delivers in the goals column.
