UCL: Messi double sink Arsenal, Juventus and Bayern draw

Lionel Messi scored twice as the European champions Barcelona recorded a 2-0 victory in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash away to Arsenal on Tuesday night.

Barcelona failed to record a single shot on target in the first period, but the Spanish outfit improved after the break and made the breakthrough in the 71st minute when Messi fired home from close range, before the Argentine netted his second from the penalty spot seven minutes from time.

Juventus scored twice in the final 30 minutes to rescue a 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 clash this evening.

The Italian champions looked down and out following a dominant opening hour for Bayern, but goals from Paulo Dybala and Stefano Sturaro ensured that they at least remain in the contest ahead of next month’s second leg at the Allianz Arena.
