Cristiano Ronaldo: Patrice Evra LEAKS WhatsApp message predicting Champions League heroics

Welcome to FIFA.com News - Barcelona and Liverpool complete quarter-final line-up

'The forecasts are not good' - Medical tests on Barcelona star, 'alarm' around player's injury

You'd like to think that when Lionel Messi watched Cristiano Ronaldo hit a hat-trick against Atletico Madrid last night he thought to himself, "pfft".

FC Barcelona in the quest for winning a treble this season, registered a thumping 5-1 win over Olympique Lyon in the 2nd Leg of the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League to book them a spot in the Quarter Finals.

Coutinho's barren run saw him jeered by some supporters during Saturday's win against Rayo Vallecano but he was given a more positive reception when he was replaced by Dembele in the second half against Lyon. This is where a great player differs from a great champion, as he is.

Ronaldo: "I know. We gonna pass bro. Whoever we get, we take tricky".

The forward will miss Sunday's league game against Real Betis and will be unavailable to join up with the France squad during the upcoming global break.

On Tuesday, Woods explained that some of the problems in his putting stemmed from the pain he was feeling in his neck. The Englishman is gradually warming to life on the PGA Tour and is surely a victor in waiting across the pond.

And with Barcelona and Juventus both through to the quarter-final of the Champions League, there's every chance they will meet at some point in the competition this season.

Messi opened the scoring with an audacious panenka penalty in the 18th minute, before striking a second time in the 78th minute.

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.

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 weren't up to the challenge and we were up against a great team, and in the end we were well beaten", he said. "He has instinctive talent". He's a genius and can do things that nobody else can.
