Lionel Messi scored two goals and set up two more as Barcelona moved into the Champions League quarter-finals with a 5-1 win over Lyon at the Nou Camp.
Three weeks after the sides battled out a goalless first-leg draw in France, Messi opened the scoring with a 17th-minute Panenka-style penalty, and Philippe Coutinho then made it 2-0 just after the half-hour mark.
Lucas Tousart pulled a goal back for Lyon in the 58th minute, before Messi added his second in the 78th and then teed up Gerard Pique and substitute Ousmane Dembele.
While he could not match Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick in Juventus' triumph over Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, Messi certainly demonstrated his class in helping his team join the Italians in Friday's last-eight draw.
