"Cristiano and Juventus were awesome".

"Sometimes I will see Luis Suarez looking tired so I will ask the Coach to put me up front, and I think I have the instinct to play in that position more often".

Fabio Capello rates Lionel Messi as one of the three best players in history but does not include Cristiano Ronaldo in his final shortlist.

Meanwhile, Barcelona and Juventus could meet in the quarterfinal of the 2018/19 Champions League. "Cristiano had a magical night with a hat-trick".

The Portugal worldwide was in superb form on Tuesday night, March 12, as he scored three goals which helped Juventus beat visiting Atletico Madrid in the UCL round of 16 clash.

Due to City finishing higher in the Premier League than their local rivals last season, it is United who will play their second leg away from home. This was a relatively comfortable affair as the team put in a top display overall especially in the first half, but Messi delivered the magic when they needed to pull away from a courageous, exciting Lyon side.

He had two opportunities to match Ronaldo and complete a treble as Lyon continued to crumble, but chose instead to set up Pique and Dembele. They lead the Spanish league and have reached the final of the Copa del Rey.

The Dutch giants have been something of a surprise package in this season's competition, with the notable scalp of Real Madrid - fresh from three successive triumphs - claimed in the previous round.

After drawing 0-0 away to Lyon last month, there was a hint of uncertainty about Barca's position heading into the return leg, particularly when Lucas Tousart pulled one back on Wednesday to make it 2-1.

"We went out to take the game to them from the very start, we moved the ball quickly and we were at our very best", Messi said.

The quarterfinal draw is on Friday. Their momentum subsided and Messi finished them off in a late flurry. Liverpool has a lot of firepower like it showed against Bayern (Munich).

Beyond that, the semifinals will put the winners of Tottenham versus Man City against the winners of Ajax versus Juventus, while Man United or Barcelona will meet either Liverpool or Porto.

"We'll have to see who we are drawn with and prepare for what is to come, which will be the hardest part yet".
