Barcelona have once again shown that Lionel Messi can have a night off in the Champions League and that the world will not end.
Last week they placed four after Dynamo Kiev without him, this time it was three in Budapest against Ferencvaros.
Antoine Griezmann took the baton and delivered the first with a clever streak. Martin Braithwaite was not far from scoring the second – his fourth in three games. And Ousmane Dembele got the third and ended the game in the armband.

Ferencvaros: Dibusz, Botka, Blazic, Frimpong, Dvali, Heister (Lovrencsics 64), Isael, Siger (Laidouni 64), Somalia (Kharatin 82), Uzuni (Baturina 71), Nguen (Mak 71)
Barcelona: Neto, Dest, Mingueza, Lenglet (Alena 65), Jordi Alba (Firpo 45), Pjanic, Sergio Busquets (de Jong 45), Trincao, Griezmann (Puig 45), Dembele, Braithwaite (de la Fuente 80 ))
Griezmann scored the first goal with a rear heel from a cross from Jordi Alba. It was his third in three games and Barcelona were on the way.
In the 21st. In the 2nd minute, Dembele crossed from the left and Braithwaite finished the game 2-0 from close range.
He’s playing with the plans of Ronald Koeman, who was a forgotten man at the start of the season.
Barcelona scored in the 28. Minute again when Braithwaite raced clear and was overthrown by Abraham Frimpong. Dembele took the ball and sent it past Denes Dibusz.
Braithwaite was shot in goal by Frimpong at every opportunity. He could have done four, but he shot far.
David Siger threw a shot in the second half just five minutes from time when the Hungarians started the second half better, but Barcelona were soon back on the attack and Dembele ran from the center line to the edge of the six-yard box the ball at his feet.
He finished the runaway and pulled his shot out of bounds, but it was a setback for the Dembele, who first showed up in Barcelona before injuries slowed him down.
Next he ran to the left and almost found Braithwaite with a cross that went just above the Dane.
When Clement Lenglet was 65. Minute went off, Dembele also took on the armband as the oldest Barcelona player on the field. Koeman does his best to bring in a player who seemed lost to the cause and Dembele responds.
Inevitably, Barcelona’s foot was off the accelerator by now. Roko Baturina headed into the goal and Neto had to skilfully dive to the left to avoid the strain. Dembele persisted and tried to block Francico Trincao, but the Portuguese sent his shot from close by.
Dembele wouldn’t be Dembele without making at least one absurd decision for every five inspired, and with six minutes left, substitute Riqui Puig played him in to score. With the gaping goal he tried to play it back to Puig and Ferencvaros cleared. There was also a late rag that shot far up and down from a Puig pass.
The slowdown in the second half and the failure to add more goals shouldn’t derail the performance. Barcelona go into the final week of the group stage of the Champions League with a secured top spot – how much their big rivals Real Madrid would like to be in this position.
