Barcelona beat Stuttgart 4-0 with Messi looking unstoppable

Lionel Messi was dominant as Barcelona moved into the quarter-finals of the Champions League after they beat Stuttgart 4-0 at the Nou Camp on Wednesday night for a 5-1 aggregate triumph.

Messi struck a brilliant opener after just 12 minutes to put Barca on track, and then played a key role as Pedro Rodriguez made it 2-0 soon after as the Catalan giants built a 3-1 aggregate lead.

Messi added the third goal on the hour mark to take his tally to eight goals in the last four games before Bojan Krkic completed the romp late on as Barca became Spain's only representative to make it into the last eight.
