The Argentinian was the lone scorer in the side’s humbling defeat to Osasuna which sealed Real Madrid’s 34th La Liga crown. The Los Blancos themselves registered a 2-1 victory against Villareal to seal the deal with a game to spare.

Barcelona, who were placed atop the table by a slender margin of two points prior to the lockdown couldn’t keep up with Real Madrid who are yet to lose a game since the restart.

Messi fears the worst ahead

The six-time Ballon D’or winner expressed his frustration in the post-match interview with  Movistar +,  where he blamed the team for lacking in intensity and being weak. He added that their recent loss of the lot against Osasuna at Camp Now, perfectly describes how their campaign has gone. Messi said:

“We didn’t want to end the season like this but it represents how the season has gone, We were a very erratic, very weak, low-intensity team…We lost a lot of points and today’s game is a summary of the season,”

The 33-year-old also went on to state that if things don’t improve, they will exit the Champions League at the round of 16 stage against Napoli. He added:

“If we want to win the Champions League, we have to change a lot. If we continue like this, we will lose the game against Napoli.”

“We have to change lots of things. We have a game against Napoli just around the corner and things have to change. I think we’ll have a break now which will be good for us to clear the heads a bit.

To conclude, Messi stated that the shortened Champions League is a route to turn around the season, provided they get the results.

Messi’s frustrations were evident in the game as well with the Argentinian just showing his exasperation after netting a wonderful free-kick to level things up for the side.

Despite high profile signings and managerial change, Barcelona’s slump prolongs and this time it has cost them the domestic title. The La Liga giants will host Napoli in the Champions League while holding a 1-1 aggregate from the first leg in Naples.
