Messi struck two shots past Buffon to lead Barcelona to a 3-0 victory over Juventus in their opening match of the Champions League on Tuesday.

Two of soccer's all-time best players, the 39-year-old Buffon had denied Messi a goal in their previous three meetings, including Juventus' 3-0 aggregate win in last season's quarterfinals.

"Tonight (Messi) did score (against Buffon) because we left him too much space," Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. "

Barcelona's all-time top scorer, Messi has now scored eight goals in six games across all competitions this season.
