"Even Leo Messi has not had so many games where he performed at such a high level. He scored two marvellous goals and against difficult rivals. The importance of what he did was that his first goal opened the game up for us and his second, our third in total, finished it off."
Pedro Rodríguez speaks about FC Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi.
