Champions League Group D: Barcelona 5-1 Panathinaikos

Table of Contents
Lionel Messi scored twice and and missed a penalty as Barcelona started their Champions League campaign with a convincing 5-1 success over Panathinaikos at the Camp Nou.

Sidney Govou had fired the visitors into a shock lead but Barcelona recovered swiftly with a brace from Messi either side of David Villa's strike before the interval.

Messi fluffed his hat-trick chance with a tame penalty in the second period before Pedro Rodríguez and Daniel Alves added gloss to the scoreline with late efforts.
