Barcelona have been paired with Ligue 1 side Lyon in the last 16 of the competition, and Messi reckons his team are in for a difficult test against Bruno Genesio’s men.
“Lyon was not the strongest name, but it will be complicated,” he said. ”They were equal when they played [Manchester] City; they will be difficult to advance against.
”It’s a long way away, a lot of things can happen between now and February. We don’t know how they’re going to be, how we’re going to be, but we know it’s going to be a complicated game.”
