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 win over Lyon, ONAreorts quoting BBC.

 

Treble-chasing Barca, who drew 0-0 in the first leg, led when Messi chipped home a penalty.

 

Philippe Coutinho tapped into an empty net from Luis Suarez's unselfish pass before Lucas Tousart's volley gave Lyon hope.

 

Messi 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 Friday at 11:00 GMT.

 

Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Juventus, Ajax and Porto are their potential rivals.
