Lionel Messi scored his 100th Champions League goal as Barcelona defeated Chelsea 3-0 on Wednesday to reach the quarter-finals, 4-1 on aggregate. 
He had already put Barcelona ahead after just three minutes, beating Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois at his post with Ousmane Dembele adding the second goal on 20 minutes after being set up by Messi.
Barcelona join Real Madrid, Sevilla, Manchester City, Liverpool, Juventus, Roma and Bayern Munich in Friday’s quarter-final draw.
The Argentinian follows Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo as only the second player in the competition’s history to reach the milestone.
Ronaldo has scored 117 goals but Messi (100) is well clear of Raul Gonzalez (71), Ruud van Nistelrooy (56) and Karim Benzema (53), the next most prolific player not to have retired.
