Lionel Messi scored twice and set up two more as Barcelona reached the Champions League quarter-finals for a record 12th consecutive year with a last-16 5-1 win over Lyon.

Treble-chasing Barca, who drew nil nil in the first leg, led when Messi chipped home a penalty.

Philippe Coutinho then tapped into an empty net from

Luis Suarez’s unselfish pass before Luca Tousart’s volley gave Lyon hope.

Messi however clinched the game with a run and finish

before assisting late strikes from Gerard Pique and Ousmane Dembele.

Barcelona will discover their quarter-final and

potential semi-final opponents on tomorrow.

Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool,

Tottenham, Juventus, Ajax and Porto are all potential rivals of the Catalan giants.
