"It was a surprise, I thought Atletico would be stronger".
Lionel Messi pledged at the start of the season to bring "that attractive cup" back to the Camp Nou and on the evidence of Wednesday night, few would bet against him.
"When (Messi) is playing at this level you nearly can't stop him", said Lyon coach Bruno Genesio. "We did what we could".
Ronaldo silenced his remaining critics with a hat-trick against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, and Costa revealed how the Portuguese had "improved Juve in every aspect", despite his initial reservations about the transfer.
North Korea says it may suspend nuclear talks
The U.S. line appears to have hardened since then, NPR's Anthony Kuhn reports from Seoul, South Korea. North Korea expert Joshua Pollack said North Korea may be delivering an ultimatum.
The game at the Camp Nou could prove decisive for Barca, who already sit seven points clear of Diego Simeone's side, their closest challengers at the top of the table. The Brazilian was bright, enjoying one of his best performances in weeks.
Meanwhile, Philippe Coutinho said he has struggled for form during the last few months after scoring for the first time in 10 games in the win over Lyon. You never know what the future holds.
Both men will return to domestic action this weekend, with Juve set to face Genoa in Serie A and Barca making the trip to Real Betis in La Liga. You couldn't work as hard as Ronaldo and get to where he is.
Messi scored a penalty with a delightful Panenka early on in the first half to settle the nerves after Luis Suarez had been fouled by Jason Denayer.
A penalty was given, although Messi was made to wait while VAR checked, but there was no sign of tension.
Messi worked a bit of his usual magic as well. A quick switch of the ball from his left boot to his right was enough for Suarez to juke past Fernando Marcal and draw in Lopes before he passed for Coutinho to tap home on the half-hour mark.
Lyon looked dead and buried but found a way back in. If the four-time winners of the competition are to triumph for a fifth time, then may the odds forever be in their favour.
