At Wembley, wwwpic5678  Barcelona wanted an improvement on their recent displays and results and they got it thanks to an inspired display from their captain Lionel Messi.However, it wasn't all about him on the night.We look at the other pleasing aspects for the Azulgrana.Jordi Alba's best versionHe put in one of his best performances since joining Barcelona and that is saying a lot. Without Ousmane Dembele, he was charged with being the main offensive threat on the left and it made all the difference. wwwpic5678  Arthur's baptism of fireThe game in London marked the consecration of Arthur in the blue and red jersey and he showed that he can be a starter in this side.Marc-Andre ter Stegen was decisive againOne of the keys to success for the side in recent years has been the saves that the German goalkeeper makes and, at Wembley, he had a few key interventions at decisive moments in the contest.Ernesto Valverde's decisionsThe starting line-up that he picked was a success. He removed Dembele and opted for Philippe Coutinho, populating his midfield with personnel, which was key, even if the second half changes weren't so good.Sergio Busquets' perfect nightBusquets was again the insurance that the side needed in midfield. The youth team product had a 100 percent passing accuracy, an incredible feat in an away Champions League game. wwwpic5678
