Against Lyon, Messi reached Andres Iniesta's record of playing 131 Champions League matches and managed to equal Xavi Hernandez as the player with the most victories for Barcelona with a total of 476.

Either way, they are both exceptional talents and they've proved that once again this week.

With the Champions League now down to the final eight, they could be back on the same field soon.

"What Cristiano and Juventus did was incredible", Messi said after Wednesday's win at Camp Nou.

"I think he had a great game".

Liverpool made sure their bid to return to the Champions League final in consecutive years remained intact as they beat Bayern Munich 3-1 at the Allianz Arena.

Ronaldo has now scored 23 goals in all competitions for Juventus this season, while Messi has netted 36 goals. "Cristiano had a magical night with a hat-trick". "The truth is that us Argentines are proud that Messi is Argentinian and did not go with the Spanish", said Maradona.

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 31-year-old put his side ahead with a ideal Panenka penalty within the first 20 minutes of the match.

Trailing 2-0 after the first leg, Ronaldo scored two towering headers before converting a penalty to keep Juve's hopes of winning the European trophy alive, exactly why the signed him in the first place.

Messi counts Juventus as one of the top candidates standing in his way, but it is not alone. It was a one-off match in Gramenet's ground, who were then in the Segunda Division B. Barça lost 1-0 that day and Messi was a starter.

"It'll be hard no matter who we face".
