Premier League club Tottenham on Wednesday night, October 3, suffered another embarrassing defeat in the Champions League losing 2-4 at home against Spanish champions Barcelona.

After losing their first game in this season's Champions League campaign, the expectation of all Spurs' fans was for their players to impress them against Barcelona, but they disappointed.

It took Barcelona only 92 seconds to score their first goal through Brazilian star Philippe Coutinho who was superbly assisted by Lionel Messi and Jordi Alba.

Tottenham goalie Hugo Lloris would have himself to blame for conceding the first goal as he rushed off his line leaving heaps of space for Coutinho to score.

Coutinho then provided the assist that gave Barcelona their second goal at the Wembley stadium in the 28th minute through Croatia international Ivan Rakitic.

The first half however ended with the visitors leading at the Wembley stadium.

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.

But Lionel Messi added more salt to the wound of the Spurs' fans when he netted the third goal for Barcelona in the 56th minute with Jordi Alba providing the assist.

Eric Lamela gave Tottenham fans some hope in the 66th minute when he scored the second goal thanks to a superb assist by Heung Son, but Barcelona held on to record an incredible 4-2 win as Messi scored his second goal at the death.

Earlier, Briefly.com had reported how Barcelona became the first football club in the world to reach $1 billion revenue figures mark and the Catalans even achieved this four years earlier than anticipated.

Barcelona announced in a statement on their social media page that they were able to achieve this success because they are the highest sports earning club in the world.
