Lionel Messi scored twice and set up two more goals as Barcelona beat Lyon 5-1 to reach the Champions League quarterfinals on Wednesday.

After a 0-0 draw in the first leg, Luis Suarez ensured Barcelona was up 2-0 by halftime by earning a penalty converted by Messi and setting up Philippe Coutinho to score.

Lyon’s Lucas Tousart gave the visitors hope with a goal in the 58th minute, but Messi scored again in the 78th before passing for Gerard Pique and Ousmane Dembele to round off the win.
