Lionel Messi's masterclass inside the Nou Camp didn't go unnoticed at home or aborad, with the foreign newspapers hailing the 31-year-old's greatness.

Messi scored twice on Tuesday night against Manchester United before Philippe Coutinho sealed a 4-0 aggregate Champions League quarter-final win with a beautiful curler from range.

On the front page of Spanish football newspaper, Marca, the headline read: 'Messi flies towards Wanda', making reference to the final in Atletico Madrid's stadium on June 1.Mundo Deportivo also chose to highlight the brilliance of Barcelona's No 10, stating: 'To the Messi-finals'.



Unsurprisingly, AS, the Madrid-based paper, chose to focus on Cristiano Ronaldo, who went out of the competition in the last eight after defeat in Turin by Ajax.'Ajax eliminate Cristiano,' the headline read.In Italy, the focus was purely on Juventus.

'End of the road,' read La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Corriere dello Sport was stronger in its criticism, writing: 'Apocalypse - Juve out of the Champions League: infinite obsession.

Tutto Sport chose to highlight how well Ajax's young team had done to reach the semi-finals without the riches of their opponents.
