Lionel Messi scored twice as Barcelona beat Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 in a thrilling UEFA Champions League clash at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday (October 3).

Philippe Coutinho slotted home the opening goal after just 92 seconds, and Ivan Rakitic volleyed a brilliant second just before the half-hour mark.

Harry Kane fired past goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen after the break to give Spurs hope, before Messi, who had already hit the post twice, finished off a neat move to restore Barcelona’s two-goal lead.

Erik Lamela gave Spurs hope with a shot which took a deflection off defender Clement Lenglet and beat Ter Stegen to make it 3-2.
