Lionel Messi Saves Barça

The FC Barcelona had a complicated game with the Spartak of Moscow.

The Barça from Cristian Tello opened the scoring after 14 minutes, but the home side were pegged back just before the half-hour mark by an own goal from Dani Alves following a Spartak break.

Barça struggled to create many opportunities, and were carved apart on the break once more in the second half as Romulo stunned the home crowd into silence with a goal in the 59th minute to send the visitors ahead.

But Messi popped up with two close-range strikes in the 72nd and 80th minutes to put the Catalans back in the lead for good, though question marks remain after they were given a run for their money by the determined side from Russia.
