Do Lionel Messi & Cristiano Ronaldo thrive on each other’s magic?

Anything you can do, I can do better.

A night after Ronaldo recorded a magnificent hat-trick to propel Juventus past Atletico Madrid and into the Champions League quarter-finals, his old nemesis Lionel Messi followed suit with a decisive contribution of his own to send Barcelona past Lyon.

The victory allows Barca to keep La Liga’s flag flying as the sole Spanish representatives in the last eight, as well as keeping Messi on track to fulfil his pledge –

delivered in a surprisingly forthright pre-season speech to fans – to bring back the European crown for the first time since 2015.
