One more year, no English teams will play Champions League quarterfinals. Barça eliminated City this Wednesday at Camp Nou with a 1-0 (3-1 in the aggregate). A result that doesn't reflect what was lived at Barça's stadium, with an amazing performance by Leo Messi, one more time. Despite not scoring, the Argentine was constantly dangerous and he delighted the supporters with his skills. He assisted Rakitic in the goal and participated in almost all the goal chances that the goalkeeper Hart could refuse.

An English former Barça player, Gary Lineker, commented the match via Twitter and he enjoyed a lot Barça's performance and specially Messi's: "Messi is indisputably the greatest player ever to don a pair of football boots. Don't even attempt to argue the point."

 

 

And he went further. Take a look at his second tweet: A measure of Messi's greatness is that he makes world class players like Aguero and Suarez look distinctly ordinary by comparison."

 

 

Lineker also assessed City's performance and the crisis of Premier League: "But for a truly astonishing display of goalkeeping from Joe Hart, our Premier League champions would be going home humiliated."

 

 

"Crisis point for @premierleague football. If no winter break at least play less games over Xmas and no FA Cup replays beyond 4th round."
