Barcelona 3-0 Juventus: Magical Messi brace exacts sweet revenge


Lionel Messi finally broke his duck against Gianluigi Buffon, scoring twice in a masterful showing as Barcelona tore Juventus apart 3-0 in their Champions League opener - payback for their elimination in the quarter-finals last term. The Argentine made the difference between the two sides, leaving Buffon wrong-footed twice while his run led directly to Ivan Rakitic’s goal in between. Given the way Messi’s season has begun, who can legitimately expect to stop him this term?
