Messi opened the scoring in the 16th minute in stunning fashion. He skipped past Fred before unleashing a glorious curling strike into the bottom corner.

Barcelona await the winners of Liverpool vs. Porto. The Reds head into the second-leg with a two-goal advantage and if they're victorious, Messi would face-off against another Premier League club in Europe.

He's actually yet to score versus Liverpool but he could have the chance to break his duck against them in the semi-final.
