  • Lionel Messi,Champions League,Barcelona

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor rocked up to the Camp Nou on Wednesday looking to book Barcelona's place in the Champions League quarter-finals following a drab 0-0 draw in the first leg in Lyon.

The Brazilian playmaker finished a slick move involving compatriot Arthur and former Liverpool team-mate Luis Suarez just after the half-hour mark, as Messi's double and goals from Gerard Pique and substitute Ousmane Dembele clinched a resounding victory.

"But every team left is hard, so let's see who we get next".

Cristiano Ronaldo inspired Juventus to record a comeback win against Atletico Madrid.

Ronaldo captured the attention of the soccer world on Tuesday when he scored a hat trick to lead Juventus past Atletico Madrid and into the Champions League quarterfinals.

"Luckily we then got the third goal".

Having picked up a 0-0 draw in France in the first leg of their Champions League tie against Lyon, Barcelona won 5-1 at the Camp Nou.

Trey Flowers to sign with the Lions
The Lions need a slot receiver after trading Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles at the trade deadline previous year . In 34 games, he has 78 grabs for 1,005 yards and 11 scores, numbers that make him Detroit's immediate No. 1 tight end.

His side were in a more vulnerable position as a score draw would have sent them out, and they began the game as if they meant business, with Messi firing an early shot which Lopes had to beat away for a corner.

He continued to torment the visitors, gifting defender Pique a sliding tap-in with a handsome pass and then setting up substitute Dembele. They will be looking to change their Quarter Final fate this time around, as they were knocked out of the Quarter Finals in the last 3 seasons.

"We have to concede they were better than us".

"We're relaxed and what we have to prepare for is the toughest test possible, which is what's coming now in the final stage of the season".

What did you make of Messi's dominant display on Wednesday? "He has instinctive talent".

"All of the opponents are complicated", Messi added.
