Lionel Messi sent a strong warning to his teammates saying their place in the finals of the Champions League is not a done deal yet even after winning 3-0 on the night. On the night after they walloped Liverpool at home. Luis Suarez opener in the 26th minute, then the two superb goals by King Messi in the 75th and 82nd minutes broke hearts of Liverpool fans for good.

The effort of the Egyptian king, Salah only went as far as hitting the goal post.
