|Lionel Messi Champions League 2011|
FC Barcelona didn´t really risk & played a comfortable match which started with the home side on fire, but they faded out as the match went on. Once again plenty of chances for Shakhtar D with a good Barça goalie Valdes, but as the already mentioned many a time saying goes..."if you don´t take your chances you´ll lose". LIONEL MESSI scored the only goal & the match winner in the 43rd min adding another mark to his already impressive tally of goals for this season.
FC Barcelona now awaits for the semi-finals their opponent, which should be - if nothing "strange" occurs - Real Madrid which takes a 4 - 0 1ºst leg advantage to Tottemham to attempt to seal their "meeting" with Barça.
