Champions League Draw: How to watch, thoughts from Messi, Ronaldo

Ronaldo kicked things off with a hat-trick for Juventus in their comeback win against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

Following his brace in FC Barcelona's win over Lyon in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night, superstar Lionel Messi reached yet another terrific personal milestone.

Lucas Tousart's effort pulled Lyon back into the tie briefly and Messi, who scored Barca's third and then created goals for Gerard Pique and Ousmane Dembele, admitted the Catalans nearly let things get away from them. Messi, is now eighteen goals behind his biggest rival, but he does have the advantage when it comes to this season's tournament.

"We went out to take the game to them from the very start, we moved the ball quickly and we were at our very best", Messi said. "He was like Ronaldo".

Both Messi and Ronaldo performed heroically for Barcelona and Juventus, respectively, in the Champions League as they steered their side into the next round of the competition.

The Portuguese superstar bagged an unbelievable hat-trick to fire Juventus through to the last eight of the Champions League, just when they needed him most.
