FC Barcelona v Juventus - UEFA Champions League
There was no stopping Lionel Messi

Barcelona took revenge of last season's humiliating 3-0 loss at the hands of Juventus in the quarter-final of the UEFA Champions League by inflicting a 3-0 loss to the Turin giants at the Camp Nou.

It was a Lionel Messi show, as the diminutive Argentine scored twice, while also setting up Ivan Rakitic's goal. It was the first time that Messi had managed to score past Gianluigi Buffon and as such, was a special night for the 30-year-old.

Twitter, as you would expect, didn't hold back from showering praise on the 5-time Ballon d'Or winner. Here are the best tweets:

The wait is over...

The magic...

The praise...

Some numbers!

He does eventually get past them, doesn't he?

A false dawn? Or does he have a point?
