FC Barcelona began their Champions League campaign in a worrying fashion. The Catalan club found themselves down 2-1 to Spartak Moscow at home. Lionel Messi became the hero yet again as a late double saw the hosts win 3-2 (via foxsports).

The second leg of the tie will occur Tuesday in a very much frozen Russia. Barcelona have begun to regain form, and many other factors will play a major role in this game.
Let's review why Barcelona should win this game with a dominant performance.
