Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele out for month with hamstring injury

Lionel Messi,Champions League,Barcelona

The former Liverpool midfielder, who moved to Catalonia last January for a reported initial fee of £106.4million, scored in Wednesday's 5-1 Champions League win over Lyon but has failed to establish himself in Barca's first team.

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.

The playmaker netted during the victory over Lyon in the Champions League on Wednesday night, but the alleged Manchester United target has acknowledged that his future at the Catalan giants remains unclear.

"With what happened [Tuesday] with Cristiano and Juventus was really impressive", Messi told FCBarcelona.com.

"I thought Atletico Madrid would be tougher".

The more Wales tried to close out the game the more Scotland began to find gaps in the usually formidable Welsh defense.

"We did everything we could to stop (Messi), but when he is playing like this he is one of the best players of all time", Lyon coach Bruno Genesio said.

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.

Two weeks later, when the two sides met again in Turin, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hattrick.

Messi promised his fans he would do all he could to win another European Cup at the start of the season, while Ronaldo is surely eager to prove he was the reason Madrid won it for four of the past five years.

Like it or not, comparisons will always be made between two of the greatest footballers of all-time, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Liverpool eliminated Bundesliga power Bayern Munich 3-1 to make the final cut.
