Ajax football flag Amsterdam

Lionel MESSI scored twice and had two assists in FC Barcelona's 5-1 win against Lyon. "The truth is that us Argentines are proud that Messi is Argentinian and did not go with the Spanish", said Maradona.

Messi opened the scoring against Lyon from the penalty spot before Philippe Coutinho doubled the home side's lead at Camp Nou before the break.

Lyon tried to force their way back into the tie with a second half goal which made it 2-1, but Messi wasn't having any of it. "(Manchester) City, Juventus... Ajax has shown that it has a great team of younger players who aren't afraid of anyone.

"Atletico were a hard team but we were strong too. The important thing is that we got the third goal and then we were far calmer". "But it did and that calmed us down". Gerard Pique stood up for the Brazilian after he was jeered at the weekend in the game against Rayo Vallecano, whilst also admitting that such criticism is a part of life at Barca.

Beto to Make First Trip to Iowa
Paul Tewes, who led Barack Obama's 2008 Iowa operation, and Margaret Jarosz, who was working for Sen. He did not respond to requests about whether O'Rourke was planning to run for president.

His side were in a more vulnerable position as a score draw would have sent them out, and they began the game as if they meant business, with Messi firing an early shot which Lopes had to beat away for a corner.

"I am happy with my performance (against Lyon)".

But while the talent gap between them is nearly imperceptible, their public displays remain unmistakably dissimilar.

The eight-team field is set for the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals after the round of 16 concluded Wednesday. "He produced an outstanding performance tonight, he was incredible", Barca coach Ernesto Valverde said. Period. Ronaldo is very strong as he lets you win everything, but Messi is a genius and something else.
