Livescore: Latest Champions League result for Barcelona vs Lyon

Livescore: Latest Champions League result for Barcelona vs Lyon

Barca looked unsettled for a brief period after Tousart's goal had put Lyon one goal away from knocking the Catalans out, and the home side defended with an air of panic.

"We don't want to choose one [side] because they're all really tough", Messi said.

And though Messi thought Diego Simeone's side would make it more hard for the Bianconeri, he hailed the match-winning display his fellow five-time Ballon d'Or victor churned in.

Lyon tried to force their way back into the tie with a second half goal which made it 2-1, but Messi wasn't having any of it. "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.

Messi opened the scoring with an audacious panenka penalty in the 18th minute, before striking a second time in the 78th minute. "We spent minutes of suffering, [but] with 3-1 everything calmed down".

He combined fluidly with strike partner Luis Suarez and almost put the game to bed at the start of the second half when he beat Lyon substitute keeper Mathieu Gorgelin but saw his shot cleared off the goalline.

Bayern then drew level after Joel Matip inadvertently poked the ball into his own goal in an attempt to prevent the deadly Robert Lewandowski from getting a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Meanwhile, Coutinho, who joined from Liverpool for €160 million last January, has been linked with a return to England after seeing his place in Barca's side taken by Ousmane Dembele.

It was old hat for both managers when they were asked about the exploits of Messi, who both had nothing but massive praise for Barca's No. 10.

"We are all very focused for this competition and Leo too, he has had an incredible match", Ernesto Valverde told reporters, per Goal, after the match.

Lyon coach Genesio added: "Tonight Messi was in Champions League mode".
