Alexis Sanchez: Messi cried after missed penalty against Chelsea

Cristiano Ronaldo hits first perfect hat-trick of La Liga season

Barcelona face Premier League champions Chelsea in the last-16, with the first leg of the tie at Stamford Bridge on February 20.

Messi missed a penalty in the Nou Camp before 10-man Chelsea edged past the Catalan giants 3-2 on aggregate en route to their famous European title triumph.

And Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez, who was part of that Barcelona team in 2012, says he saw the five-time Ballon d'Or victor break down in tears after the match. That's why we love football. That's all part of football. Sanchez reportedly earns £350,000 a week at Manchester United and says that financial-based criticism is unwarranted. "In the Barcelona dressing room after the Chelsea game, I saw Leo cry", Sanchez told Sky Sports.

"That's because players demand so much from themselves, people don't see that".

'That might mean not seeing your family, or missing your mother's birthday, many players are so focused that they miss the birth of their children. People don't see that.

Things have just got even bleaker too, as The Sun report that winger Ousmane Dembele, who signed from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, is back in contention for Barcelona after recovering from a hamstring tear.

"You buy a flash auto and people say that you're a show-off".

Alexis has featured three times for Jose Mourinho's side since his January move from Arsenal, scoring once and setting up another.

The Citizens have been in awesome form this season in the Premier League and are now 16 points ahead of second-placed Manchester United, with the Red Devils playing against Newcastle United later on Sunday.
