Magical Messi leads Barca rout of Juventus

Magical Messi leads Barca rout of Juventus”

"He's the best ever and played for us since he was small and we enjoy watching him play because he's unique", said Bartomeu after Barca's 3-0 win over Juventus, where Messi's scored two and created the other.

"I do not know if there is any interest, nobody told me anything, the club did not come to me, they just told me that they want me to be part of the project".

The 23-year-old remained at Italian champions Juve, though he refused to rule out a future switch to Barca to play alongside countryman Lionel Messi.

'The idea is to give Dembele minutes, we have a lot of hopes for him and this game was a first step, ' the Barcelona coach said. But in general we've got to be more applied.

A brilliant Lionel Messi goal put the hosts in front towards the end of a first half as even as the second period was one-sided.

This is likely Buffon's final season, and the 39-year-old goalkeeper is not having an easy time of it.

But their long list of absences, which also included Mario Mandzukic, Claudio Marchisio and Sami Khedira, proved costly. Also, Juan Cuadrado was suspended. Dani Alves has departed as well, with Mattia De Sciglio taking his place.

Following this 3-0 victory Barcelona will now be expected to top Group D, despite entering the group from Pot 2 of the Champions League draw.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid kick off their bid to complete a hat-trick of successes in the Champions League against Apoel Nicosia in the Bernabeu tonight. "When you fail to do simple things, it's impossible to win complicated matches".
