Two quick successes from Messi meant that Barcelona had already scored 499 goals in the Champions League and was approaching the 500 mark. So far only one team has achieved that – Real Madrid.

"At the beginning we were nervous and cold but it only took five minutes, but as soon as we made the first goal, we went again. It was a spectacular performance," Lionel Messi praised the game against Manchester with ten goals from the current Champions League.

"The important thing is that we have kept the net in both games," recalled Sergio Busquets that Barcelona's defense work well, which is also important before the confrontation between the semi-finals and the best Liverpool-Porto.

"If you want a good result, you need to perform well. Although we started well, we did some chances in the first quarter, but then Messi was right, "commented the withdrawal of his Solskjaer accusations.
