It takes game to recognize game and Cristiano Ronaldo’s magical night for Juventus against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday did not pass Messi’s attention.

The Portuguese delivered a memorable hat-trick, his career 52nd, as the Old Lady overturned a 2-0 first leg deficit to reach the Champions League round of eight.

Messi, who was equally phenomenal on Wednesday night, netting twice and assisting two goals in Barcelona’s 4-0 annihilation of Lyon, acknowledged Ronaldo’s effort.

“Cristiano and Juventus were awesome. It was a big surprise because I thought Atletico Madrid would be stronger but Juventus overcame them and Cristiano had a magical night with three goals.

The two players are considered God’s special gift to the beautiful game.
