Ronaldo scored a hat trick as Juve overturned a first leg loss in Madrid to beat Atletico 3-2 on aggregate and book their place in the last eight.
But while the talent gap between them is nearly imperceptible, their public displays remain unmistakably dissimilar. "Ronaldo had a magical night with three goals".
A four-week absence would mean Dembele missing both legs of Barcelona's Champions League quarter-final, plus LaLiga meetings against Real Betis, Espanyol, Villarreal, Huesca and second-placed Atletico Madrid.
"I thought Atletico Madrid would be tougher". And just when the French team pulled a goal back for 2-1 and was pressing for a draw that would have sent them through, Messi took control by scoring a solo goal when he wrong-footed a pair of defenders.
"All of the opponents are complicated", Messi added.
Coutinho has struggled for form and consistency since his €142 million (£121m/$161m) arrival from Liverpool in January previous year, prompting speculation of a move away and a return to the Premier League.
The playmaker netted during the victory over Lyon in the Champions League on Wednesday night, but the alleged Manchester United target has acknowledged that his future at the Catalan giants remains unclear. Messi has won it four times, Ronaldo five.
Coach Ernesto Valverde said at his post-match press conference: "It was an important game for him (Coutinho) as it was for everyone, our club and our team". The 31-year-old has set up 12 goals this season, with Chelsea's Eden Hazard following closely behind with 11 assists to his name. It will be interesting to see whom the Blaugrana side face.
