Goals galore in Champs Lg as Barcelona and Bayern advance

(AP) -- There were goals galore in the Champions League on Tuesday as Barcelona and Bayern Munich advanced to the knockout stage and also secured top spot in their groups.

Barcelona had already qualified following BATE Borisov draw with Bayer Leverkusen earlier, but it clinched top spot in Group E in style, hammering Roma 6-1 as Lionel Messi marked his return from injury with two goals.

"It's tough to get back up to full speed," said Messi. "I prepared well and trained but it's not the same as going out on the pitch and lasting 90 minutes. I will take it with calm and get my pace back."
