Fans on Twitter were in awe with the all-round performance of the Argentine global.
"We played a great first half, then from a moment's distraction it was 2-1 and we had five or 10 delicate minutes", said Barca striker Suarez.
It certainly would have been.
Messi's Barca could potentially face Ronaldo's Juve in the last eight if the two sides are paired together in Friday's draw for the next round, but the Argentine would not be drawn on who they would prefer to face in the quarterfinals.
While Messi produced another brilliant performance, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor praised Ronaldo's display 24 hours earlier.
Suarez then rounded Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes to lay on a ideal pass for the unmarked Philippe Coutinho to nudge into an open net and double Barca's lead, although Lyon hauled themselves back into contention with a second-half strike from Lucas Tousart.
That might be a step too far, admittedly, but Messi once again showed that he can do pretty much anything on a football pitch. Although even then, you wouldn't bet against him being brilliant in between the sticks.
The 31-year-old put his side ahead with a flawless Panenka penalty within the first 20 minutes of the match.
"It was extraordinary, we dominated the game, we had chances, we scored two goals and we were able to get one more".
"In the second half, Lyon risked more, they pushed us up looking for the 2-1 that got them in the game, but our people in attack have finished solving the result".
"In the Champions League you can not relax because 2-0 was not a definitive result".
