Barcelona coach Vilanova happy to reach Champions League knockouts
Lionel Messi scored twice to go to 80 goals so far in 2012, just five behind Gerd Muller's record number of goals scored in a calendar year from 1972.
Barca coach Tito Vilanova remarked: "It was important to qualify for the next round here and not have to wait until the last game, anything can happen in the last match of the group stage.
"The players proved once again how great they are. They've won a lot of titles over the years and they adapted well to tonight's circumstances: the cold and the artificial turf."
