Lionel Messi saluted Cristiano Ronaldo's efforts from the previous night after producing a superb display of his own in Barcelona's thrashing of Lyon on Wednesday.

Messi may not have scored a hat-trick at the Camp Nou but he did make a direct contribution to four of Barça's five goals.

Ronaldo scored a hat trick as Juve overturned a first leg loss in Madrid to beat Atletico 3-2 on aggregate and book their place in the last eight.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor responded to Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick for Juventus on Tuesday with his own devastating display.

"I thought Atletico Madrid would be tougher".

Messi's latest double takes his overall record for the season across all competitions to 36 goals in 35 appearances for Barca.

The Portuguese is the competition's top scorer with 124 goals in 160 games, putting him comfortably ahead of Messi, who has now netted 108 goals - albeit in just 131 appearances. "[Manchester] City, Juventus, Ajax, who have a great team of kids and don't fear anything, Liverpool, who've shown they pack a punch".

After seeing this, we'll be the ones who talk rubbish in years to come. "We have to prepare ourselves for a tough challenge".

Valverde also echoed Messi's sentiments with regard to the draw.

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

Suarez then rounded Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes to lay on a flawless pass for the unmarked Philippe Coutinho to nudge into an open net and double Barca's lead, although Lyon hauled themselves back into contention with a second-half strike from Lucas Tousart.

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. The referee can decide to give it or not".

Lyon coach Bruno Genesio added: "Tonight Messi was in Champions League mode". Instead, he just followed the ball and let it run through Marcelo's legs, at which point - we can safely assume - his soul went somewhere, anywhere, but not his body.

"We have to concede they were better than us". We were able to recover the ball higher, posed problems and reduced the score.

"When Messi is at such a level, he is nearly unstoppable".

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