Lyon coach Bruno Genesio added: "Tonight Messi was in Champions League mode". The Whites have scored just 47 times across the Spanish top flight this season and risk being embarrassed and overtaken by Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, who have 17 and 26 goals respectively, totalling to 43. The 31-year-old has set up 12 goals this season, with Chelsea's Eden Hazard following closely behind with 11 assists to his name.
"We are all psyched up for the Champions League and so is Leo".
Both players have winning the continent's elite tournament again as a priority.
