"What Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus did was unbelievable".

Regardless of what camp you sit in, we can all agree that even if you believe Lyon's Marcelo had a soul coming into Wednesday night's match with Barcelona, he definitely does not anymore.

Messi and Ronaldo's virtuoso performances have inevitably seen the age-old debate of 'who is the greatest footballer of all time?' re-emerge.

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

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. "We complicated things for ourselves at a set play because they hadn't done anything [until then]".

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.

The Brazil worldwide brushed off talk of a summer exit for now and said his focus is on Sunday's game against Real Betis as Barca continue to compete on three fronts. "Now it's about the next game". I never doubted about you!

"It was a Champions League match and in this type of game it is normal that we have moments of tension and pressure because they tend to be very fair results".

The Portugal global helped the Red Devils win a host of trophies, including the Champions League in 2008 and three Premier League titles before departing to join Real Madrid in 2009.

Lyon coach Genesio added: "Tonight Messi was in Champions League mode. Sometimes he is just unstoppable".
