Rodrigo Bentancur said Leo Messi is “from another planet” after Juventus lost 3-0 to Barcelona with the Argentine’s brace.
It was a surprise start for 20-year-old Bentancur, who previously had only one substitute appearance for the Bianconeri.
“It’s disappointing to have this defeat, as we gave our all, but it wasn’t enough,” he told JTV.
“I am happy with my own performance and what I did. Naturally, the Champions League is very different to the Copa Libertadores, as there’s a faster pace and more technique.
“Messi is just incredible, a player from another planet.”
