Marcos Alonso's attention had been diverted for only a brief second and Lionel Messi was through.Behind, Messi scampered into space, controlled and drove under the body of Thibaut Courtois.There were spells at the Camp Nou Wednesday when Messi seemed to be playing within himself. The ball was switched to the other flank but came back and Messi had hardly moved. Chelsea had chances, and Messi admitted afterward Barcelona's place in the Champions League quarterfinals had not felt safe, until he slammed in a third for 3-0, 4-1 on aggregate. Messi's second of the night was his 100th in the Champions League, coming after 123 games, 14 fewer than it took Cristiano Ronaldo to reach the same mark.Then there is the World Cup, Messi's holy grail.
