Barcelona's Dembele out 3-4 weeks because of muscle injury

Barcelona's Dembele out 3-4 weeks because of muscle injury

Lyon let slip a two-goal lead at Strasbourg on Saturday and lie third in Ligue 1, seven points behind second-placed Lille and 21 adrift of runaway leaders PSG.

According to the 41-year-old Liverpool legend, Ronaldo is the best goalscorer of all time, but he believes that Messi is the better player out of the two.

Which teams are in the hat for the Europa League quarter-final draw?

Although many had written Juve off after their 2-0 defeat to Los Rojiblancos in the first leg, Ronaldo seemingly always believed they would progress to the next round.

The result and performance from Barca was rounded off when Ousmane Dembele finished well, following a superb pass from Messi once more. The draw takes place on Friday.

This season the youngster has managed to score eight goals and provide 13 assists in just 25 league games and rumours have it that BVB are ready to cash in on him.

Juventus were 2-0 down from the first leg but the five-time Ballon d'Or victor produced a match-winning performance to overturn the deficit.

Ferrari have tried to change the narrative but Mercedes have inked their name in the record books each time. At this point, we are all flat out trying to understand what happened in the session.

Messi himself had a night to remember on Wednesday, the day after Ronaldo's heroics, to help Barcelona reach the quarter-finals. Messi has won it four times, Ronaldo five.

Messi counts Juventus as one of the top candidates standing in his way, but it is not alone. Liverpool has a lot of firepower like it showed against Bayern (Munich).

"I think if the draw gives something like Manchester City versus Manchester United, or Tottenham against Liverpool, for example, I think would be absolutely fantastic matches".

"We'll have to see who we are drawn with and prepare for what is to come, which will be the hardest part yet".

For Solskjaer, the second leg will bring back memories of the 1999 final, when the Norwegian came off the bench to score a stoppage-time victor for United against Bayern Munich at Barcelona's Camp Nou stadium.

The quarterfinals first leg will begin on 10th April after the worldwide break.
