Lionel Messi inspired Barcelona to victory over Napoli in the Champions League on Saturday with some typical brilliance on the pitch.

The Barcelona captain was also caught on camera and overheard urging his side on in the tunnel at half-time on Saturday at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona were leading 3-1 at the break, and 4-2 on aggregate, and Messi’s message to his team-mates was clear ahead of the second 45 minutes.

The team did go on and see out the win, but the second-half performance from both sides was not great and is probably best forgotten.
