Juventus slipped past Atletico Madrid in Tuesday’s second leg, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring two headers and a penalty to see the Italian club overturn a 2-0 first-leg loss and leaving the Barca star to marvel at the exploits of his former Real Madrid rival.

Following Barcelona’s victory against Lyon, Messi said;

“Cristiano and Juventus were awesome, it was a big surprise because I thought Atletico would be stronger.

“But Juventus overcame them and Cristiano had a magical night with three goals.”

Messi and Barcelona must now wait until Friday’s draw to see who they will face in the quarter-finals, but the 31-year-old doesn’t see a preferred opponent in the last eight.

“All rivals are difficult, we can’t choose,” he said. “We have to wait for the draw and see who will be our rival.

“City, Juventus, Ajax, all are really good. Liverpool have offensive success and they showed at Munich. All of them will be complicated.”
