Barcelona 3 – Olympiakos 1
Barcelona made it three wins out of three in the Champions League on Wednesday night at the Camp Nou.
The Catalans beat Olympiakos 3-1, leaving the Greeks bottom of the group with zero points on the board.
A Dimitrios Nikolaou own goal put Barca ahead after 8 minutes. But the Spanish giants suffered a setback before the break when Gerard Pique collected his second yellow card.
Despite being down to 10 men, Leo Messi doubled Barca’s lead on the hour mark with a free-kick.
Lucas Digne put the hosts 3-0 up before Dimitrios Nikolaou netted a late consolation goal for Olympiakos.
Leo Messi’s super strange behaviour
After ten minutes of the game, Leo Messi was spotted doing something very strange with his sock.
Messi put his hand down his sock, he pulled something out, which he immediately put in his mouth.
According to reports in Spain, Messi was eating a glucose tablet for an energy boost.
That duly seemed to work, as Messi scored his 100th European goal for Barcelona.
Bizarre reaction to Pique’s red card
In another eye-catching moment in the game, a couple of Barcelona fans reacted bizarrely after Pique was sent off.
The cameras panned to a couple of Asian fans in the Barcelona crowd, who reacted to the Pique dismissal as if Barca had scored a goal.
It was all incredibly weird!
