After the hat-trick in the weekend victory over Valencia, Lionel Messi scored “only” two in Barcelona’s 4-0 victory over Stuttgart, sending the European champions into the UEFA champions League quarter finals with a 5-1 aggregate win over the pretty helpless Germans, who seemed doomed from the start, not really posing any threat to the rampant Los Cules, led by Messi who did whatever he pleased most of the time and a fantastic Yaya Toure in the middle, taking the responsibilities of the injured Xavi in impressive fashion.
