Messi was interviewed by the Spanish press after the match and was asked to give his thoughts about Juve's 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid.

Lionel Messi hailed Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick performance against Atletico Madrid as "magical" following his own dazzling display for Barcelona in the Champions League.

"All of the opponents are complicated", he said.

"It'll be hard no matter who we face. We weren't up to the challenge and we were up against a great team, and in the end we were well beaten", he said.

COUTINHO would make it 2-0 and Lyon would draw one back and make it 2-1 but not for very long. Referee Szymon Marciniak pointed to the spot and Messi then coolly converted after the incident was checked by VAR.

On the penalty, which Suarez won following a foul by Jason Denayer, the Uruguayan admitted: "I stepped on him without meaning to and I think after that he destabilised me".

No, Marcelo's soul was unfortunately stolen by one Luis Suarez at the Camp Nou, and the Uruguayan did so with the sort of nutmeg that we usually only read about in story books or hear about from our grandfathers who like to talk rubbish.

"We always knew it would be like this".

"In the second half, we had a better time".

Meanwhile, Lyon boss Bruno Genesio described Messi as a "genius". Incredibly, he has scored 63 goals in 77 Champions League knockout games compared to Messi's total of 42 goals in 64. It hurt us a lot and it boosted Barca's spirits.

The pair are level for Champions League hat-tricks with eight apiece, but it is significant that four of Ronaldo's have come in the knockout stages compared to only two of Messi's.

The topic of the human soul is one that has perplexed humans since the dawn of time.

A worrying head injury to goalkeeper Anthony Lopes forced the visitors into a substitution just before halftime, with Mathieu Gorgelin taking over between the sticks.
