Barcelona vs Tottenham
Tottenham travelled to Barcelona on Wednesday in a must-win Champions League tie.
Heading into the game Tottenham were second in Group B with one game remaining.
However, 3rd place Inter Milan were, like Spurs, on seven points and had a -1 goal difference.
The Serie A side was playing their final group game at home to PSV and as the Dutch side have failed to win a single UCL game this season, Tottenham really needed to beat Barca.
Barca had not lost any of their previous group games this season, meaning they had already secured top spot in Group B.
As a result, the Catalan side played a very weak side vs Tottenham with Luis Suarez out of the matchday squad and Lionel Messi on the bench.

This gave Spurs fans some hope of picking up a win prior to kick-off.
Unfortunately for Spurs, they would go 1-0 down inside seven minutes thanks to a superb goal from Ousmane Dembele.
It’s a nightmare start for Spurs…

While Dembele did show some great individual skill to score the goal, the original error to give the Frenchman the ball came from Kyle Walker-Peters.
Walker-Peters was forced to start at right-back for Spurs vs Barca due to Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier both being out injured.
However, the youngsters big moment did not get off to a good start with Walker-Peters gifting Dembele the ball, which allowed him to go on and score his superb goal.
As a result, many Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to express their displeasure at Walker-Peters.
I think that walker-peters will be replaced at half time just not his night #BARTOT
