Cristiano Ronaldo is situated on the right, with the Portuguese having scored a sensational hat-trick against Atletico as Juventus made a remarkable comeback.

"What Cristiano and Juventus did on Tuesday was impressive", Messi told Catalunya Radio. In the process, the former Real Madrid star taunted Atletico boss Diego Simeone.

In goal is Szczesny, goalkeeper for Juventus, who kept a clean sheet against Atletico and who was rarely troubled throughout the entire game.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, might want to watch what he sends to Evra in future because the former France worldwide clearly doesn't hesitate to share any messages with the public.

"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.

Dembele's form has been disrupted since the turn of the year, though, as he missed five matches in January and February due to an ankle injury. The quarterfinal draw is on Friday. The 31-year-old has set up 12 goals this season, with Chelsea's Eden Hazard following closely behind with 11 assists to his name.

Both players have winning the continent's elite tournament again as a priority.

Lionel Messi is on track to win an unprecedented sixth Golden Boot at the end of this season, courtesy of his exploits in Spain's top flight.

"We went out to take the game to them from the very start, we moved the ball quickly and we were at our very best", Messi said. Liverpool has a lot of firepower like it showed against Bayern (Munich). It will be interesting to see whom the Blaugrana side face.

"There are big players who can not excel in important matches".
