Lionel Messi netted twice to reach 100 UEFA Champions League goals as Barcelona became the final side to secure their spot in the quarter-finals of the 2017-18 tournament by beating Chelsea 3-0 at the Camp Nou on Wednesday. 

With the tie poised at 1-1 after the first leg, the Argentinian put Barca ahead inside three minutes as he beat Thibaut Courtois from a very tight angle.

Messi then set up Ousmane Dembele for his first Barca goal midway through the opening half and netted his second just after the hour to seal the victory.

Chelsea were far from poor on the night but paid heavily for a lack of clinical finishing and a couple of Courtois errors.
