Brilliant Lionel Messi conducts Catalans in unrelenting win

Harry Kane has set his sights on emulating the incredible goal-scoring feats of Lionel Messi as the Tottenham striker prepares for his shoot-out with the Barcelona legend.Tottenham Hotspur's English striker Harry Kane reacts after missing a chance during the English Premier League football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton at Wembley Stadium in London, on December 26, 2017.

Tottenham face back-to-back games against PSV Eindhoven with both teams having lost their first two matches.

Philippe Coutinho had the visitors ahead inside of two minutes, smashing a half-volley into an empty net after Hugo Lloris was caught out trying to chase down a Messi through ball.

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.

Harry Kane halved the deficit early in the second half, only to see Messi score at the other end soon afterwards, before Erik Lamela pulled another one back for Spurs on 66 minutes.

The relationship between Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique at Barcelona is reportedly on an all time low this season after the last two games played by the reigning Spanish champions.

Kane and Messi will be the leading men at Wembley on Wednesday when Tottenham host Barcelona in a crucial Champions League clash.

Do not forget that we are talking about the Champions League - the top level of the club game and arguably higher even than the World Cup in terms of depth of quality - yet Messi made Tottenham look like school kids as he mesmerised Pochettino's players.

Messi had the final say, though, as he tucked home from 10 yards out in the final minute after Suarez dummied Alba's cross from the left to put the Argentine into space.

"Hopefully we can produce that same energy", he said.

"We played a great match and in the first half we were extraordinary so we are happy because everything went as we wanted it to". "It will be tough because we've got to win the games".

Barcelona have returned to winning ways thanks to a 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League this evening. The crowd were incredible and that's what we need tomorrow night.
