Lionel Messi backed to break Cristiano Ronaldo's Champions League scoring record

Manchester United and Spurs are also out of the Champions League, meaning the FA Cup represents their final chance of silverware this season, too.

Chelsea are aiming to win the FA Cup and secure a top-four finish in the Premier League rather than prioritising one over the other, manager Antonio Conte said ahead of Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final away to Leicester City.

Blues head coach Conte left the Nou Camp pitch after Wednesday night's 3-0 loss, featuring two goals from Messi, with his arm around the Argentina playmaker.

"This is a question for the coach of the national teams, not for me", Conte said when asked whether Cahill's and Morata's omissions placed doubt over their involvement in the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

Conte will be taking no risks with his team selection as Chelsea aim to reach the final for the second year in a row, having lost to London rivals Arsenal last season.

Messi played a hand in all four goals in his side's 4-1 aggregate win over Chelsea in the round of 16 tie, and has now scored six goals and assisted a further two strikes in eight UCL games this season.

"We are talking about a player who can move the final result for every team, for any team he is playing in", Conte was quoted as saying by ESPNFC. To try to go into the next round and reach the semi-final of the FA Cup.

"We have to try to do both", Conte said. "We have to make sure we play in the Champions League next year".

However, Barcelona got off to the ideal start in this game when, with less than three minutes played, they took the lead. "So for this reason I will pick up the best solution for tomorrow's game". "It was a pity to go out, especially after two good performances against Barcelona".

"They want to go to the next round to try to write the history of this competition". It's my weakest point between my legs. For both of Messi's goals, the Argentine put the ball through Courtois' legs, and the Belgian admits the Barcelona forward exploited his weakness from close range.

'When you have the opportunity to make a great compliment to Messi, it is right to recognise a super, super, super top player.
