What exactly did we create barring Messi's individual ridiculousness? We passed the ball side to side, and when we tried going through the middle we pretty much ran into a wall, barring Messi single handedly dismantling the opposition. All 3 goals and pretty much every single decent chance in the game was Messi's doing.
The one positive I take from this is the back-to-back-to-back. It's a good record that will be quite hard to beat.
