Livescore: Latest Champions League result for Barcelona vs Lyon

On Tuesday night, Cristiano Ronaldo's fans were proudly proclaiming their hero as the greatest footballer of all time following his hat-trick for Juventus against Atletico Madrid. "Ronaldo had a magical night with three goals", he added, according to Marca.

Messi emerged in the closing stages, though, Barca's captain brilliantly extending his side's lead with 12 minutes to go before creating late goals for Gerard Pique and Ousmane Dembele.

Regarding Friday's draw for the quarter and semi-finals, Messi added: "All of the opponents are complicated". Ajax, for example, showed that they're an fantastic team of youngsters and they don't fear anyone.

After seeing this, we'll be the ones who talk rubbish in years to come.

First half: Messi and Coutinho make it 2-0.

Valverde also echoed Messi's sentiments with regard to the draw. "We have to prepare ourselves for a tough challenge".

Messi opened the scoring by converting a controversial penalty awarded for a Jason Denayer foul on Luis Suarez with a Panenka effort.

Lyon pulled one back in the second half when, after a goalmouth scramble, Lucas Tousart was given enough time to control a ball with his chest before finishing from close range. Barca put enormous pressure on us, which we did not know how to answer. He went into Champions League mode, and he proved he was one of the best players in the world. "It was better in the second with hope, we felt they doubted for 15 minutes before that third goal".

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.
