Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was tricked twice by Lionel Messi as the Argentine scored twice past the Chelsea goalkeeper in Barcelona’s 3-0 win over Chelsea at the Nou Camp.

Messi’s two goals were very similar as he placed the ball under Courtois’ legs as the Blues keeper was beaten at his near post.

Courtois gave an explanation for his mistakes just after the game.

“I don’t think we deserved to be out but obviously individual mistakes cost us in both legs,” he told BT Sport.

“With the first goal I didn’t expect Messi to shoot from there, I was too late to close my legs, so a mistake on my part.

“So, not nice to start the evening like that, and then two other missed passes and we paid for it.

“They scored off our mistakes, I think apart from that we played well, defended well, hit the crossbar twice today, think that’s a bit unlucky but mostly our individual mistakes cost us.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
