"It was a Champions League game and in these type of clashes it's normal that we have moments of tension and pressure because they're usually very tight games," said the Barca coach.

"(The first half) was extraordinary. We dominated the game, we scored two goals and we could have got more. In the second half, Lyon risked more, they pressed us up top, but our lads up top solved the game."

On Messi, he said: "We're all very focused on the Champions League, Leo as well. The amazing game Leo had today was incredible."
