Messi bags double as Barca see off Celtic

Posted November 28, 2016

Lionel Messi of Barcelona scores his sides second goal from the penalty spot during the UEFA Champions League Group C match between Celtic FC and FC Barcelona at Celtic Park Stadium on November 23, 2016 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Celtic's journey in the Champions League came to an end on Wednesday after a 2-0 defeat to the Spanish side, coupled with Borussia Monchengladbach's 1-1 draw with Manchester City, meant that they will finish bottom of their group. Messi ran onto it and hit a ideal left-footed shot by Craig Gordon with a first time effort, tucking it inside the left post.

"They have good qualities and we have to be at our very best to make sure we are containing that but also to go ahead and try to dominate the game and win the match".

Meanwhile, Rodgers claimed that Luis Suarez, the Barcelona striker who he had worked during his time at Liverpool, had fooled referee Daniel Orsato into awarding the visitors the penalty that Messi scored his second goal from.

Messi opened the scoring on 24 minutes after a brilliant first time volley beat Craig Gordon after Neymar had put through a well executed pass over the top of the Celtic defence.

Celtic Park on Champions League nights provides one of the best atmospheres in world football, but Messi's goals silenced the passionate 60,000 crowd. "We restricted them to one or two chances and at 1-0 we had a real chance to equalise".

According to Rogers, the team played well tonight and followed the pattern. He turned down a shot on goal to tee up Suarez, who struck the post with a close-range shot.

"I didn't think it was a penalty".

After the Parkhead clash, Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers suggested that the result would have been different if Messi had swapped teams.

Luis Enrique also brought on 21-year-old defender Marlon for his Barcelona debut in the closing stages.

It remains to be seen whether teams benefit this season from topping the group, which earns a last-16 match against a runner-up.

"It was a tough night for both players", he said in his news conference.

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said: "We were good at the back and we got better as the game went on".
