It looked like this could’ve been a tough trip for Barcelona, they’ve been a bit inconsistent this season and Slavia Prague tend to be strong at home.
That was shattered after only two minutes when Lionel Messi showed great anticipation to win the ball back before a quick exchange of passes and a delightful finish put Barca 1-0 up:
That was quick..
