Three things we learned: Tottenham v. Barcelona

Barcelona won its first Champions League match, beating PSV Eindhoven 4-0 thanks to a Lionel Messi hat trick; however, Barca's last three league matches have either ended in a loss or a draw.
Spurs twice rallied, making it 2-1 and then 3-2 and almost equalising with a deflected Lucas Moura effort, but Lionel Messi's 90th-minute strike - his second goal of the night - ended Spurs' hopes.
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.
Yes, Kane is still only 25 years old and has time on his side, but he will have his work cut out to get on Messi's level.
While acknowledging Messi's quality, manager Pochettino felt his goalkeeper's error led to Tottenham's second consecutive loss in Group B.
"Those who play football understand completely that if you start that way in this type of game, in a Champions Leaguegame against a team like Barcelona, you can not concede these types of chances". Spurs could not get near him and he left the watching crowd gasping twice within the space of five minutes as two nearly identical efforts struck the same portion of Lloris's right-hand post.

Fans, Marvel Games, and members of the Insomniac Games have been celebrating player creations with the mode all weekend. Easter eggs have been a staple of games for decades now, but there are very few stories that end up like this.
"After 45 minutes, Lionel Messi, I don't think we conceded one chance to him. In the second half, he had more space and that is hard to stop", added Pochettino.
"In the second half, with a lot of space, it's unbelievable how much he ran and dribbled and the possibilities to score, but come on".
"Come on, move on, because in the first half we concede in the first minutes".
Had Spurs had a fully fit squad to choose from, they could have nicked a point against Barcelona, or maybe even more.
Whether the Spurs players enjoyed it, as Pochettino told them to, remains to be seen, but perhaps in time they will tell their grandchildren about the night they shared a football pitch with Messi.
Lucas Moura then forced Ter Stegen into a save from 19 yards out after picking up the ball in midfield and running at the defence on 81 minutes, and the Brazilian saw his goalbound strike from 10 yards out deflected wide of the left post by Lenglet three minutes later.
