[Teams] Tottenham vs Barcelona: Confirmed Line-Ups From Wembley

"It's so hard after this for the team to feel confident to play".

Had Spurs had a fully fit squad to choose from, they could have nicked a point against Barcelona, or maybe even more.

After Tottenham's opening night defeat away at Inter Milan, Barcelona dazzled at Wembley, with Lionel Messi, Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suarez tormenting Tottenham.

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.

The Catalan giants went on to boss proceedings in the first half and Clement Lenglet managed to get on the end of Messi's free-kick from the left in the 15th minute, but failed to keep his header down.

The goal galvanized the home side, who had some decent moments as they chased the game, but Messi put the result to bed in the 90th minute, capitalizing on a Tottenham giveaway.

Ahead of the game Harry Kane was ridiculed for saying he'd like to score more goals than Lionel Messi.

Englishman Harry Kane pulled one goal back for Spurs in the 52nd minute after receiving an excellent pass from Eric Lamela in which Barcelona goalie Stegan had no answer for. He has five goals in two UCL games this season, at a rate of one goal every 36 minutes.

A gallant Tottenham side, missing the likes of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, and Jan Vertonghen, nearly levelled when Lucas Moura's shot deflected wide, but Messi ended their resistance after again being picked out by Alba.

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

"The Champions League is the icing on the cake for everyone", he said after the game.

That lack of investment threatens to stall Spurs' progress under Mauricio Pochettino as having reached the last 16 last season, an early Champions League beckons unless there is a big turnaround after starting with two defeats. While a clash with the Blaugrana is always big, Tottenham's opening matchday defeat to Inter Milan makes the game a must-win as the North Londoners can not afford to fall behind and put pressure on themselves. We still think the same, that all is possible'.
