Shares in Olympique Lyonnais fell on Thursday after the French soccer team was eliminated from Europe’s lucrative Champions League after a heavy defeat by Barcelona.

Lyon’s shares were down 2.6 percent at 2.95 euros in early session trading on the Paris stock market.

Lionel Messi led the way with two goals and two assists as Barcelona reached the Champions League quarter-finals by thrashing Olympique Lyonnais 5-1 on Wednesday.

Lyon listed its shares on the Paris stock market back in 2007.
