Alaves 0-2 Barcelona: Clinical Messi double slays Alaves


Lionel Messi bagged his first goals of the season to help Barcelona to a 2-0 win at Alaves despite missing a penalty in the first half. The hosts looked solid in the first half but conceded a soft penalty when Ely was penalised for wrestling with Pique at a corner kick. However, Messi's spot kick was saved. The Argentine then stepped it up in the second half, scoring with a shot that deflected off a defender before pouncing on a defensive mistake to make it 2-0.
