Lionel Messi expressed his disappointment after Barcelona failed to win the Spanish League in the 2019-2020 season. Barcelona beats 1-2 when Osasuna entertains at Camp Nou on Thursday (07/16/2020) or Friday (17/17) early in the morning. It was this defeat that drove Barcelona’s dream of winning the Spanish league this season. At the same time, Real Madrid managed to win 2-1 against Villarreal and won the title. After the match against Osasuna, Lionel Messi claimed that he did not expect Barcelona to end the season in this way.
His reaction was also strong, saying Barcelona were a weak team. His statement was based on the inconsistency shown by the club nicknamed Blaugrana, especially after the return of the Spanish League. Before suspending the La Liga due to the Coruna virus epidemic, Barcelona was in a positive direction and was at the top of the table. Unlike Real Madrid sharp after the return of the Spanish League, Barcelona has already faltered. “We do not expect to end a season like this. We are a weak team that can be defeated with strength and enthusiasm,” the BBC quoted Lionel Messi as saying. “We lost many points that we didn’t have to do. We were very conflicting,” he said. “We have to criticize ourselves, starting with the players, but also the whole club. We are Barcelona and we must win every game,” he said. After failing to win the Spanish League, the Champions League is the only hope for Barcelona for the rest of the season.
Barcelona will face Napoli in the first leg of the 16th Champions League at Camp Nou on Saturday (20/20/2020). Barcelona have good capital to qualify for the quarter-finals because they managed to keep Napoli 1-1 at the San Paolo in the first leg of the round of sixteen. However, Lionel Messi also said that his team must improve immediately in order to perform brilliantly in the Champions League. “I will tell you if our mentality continues like this, we will not go as far in the Champions League, as in La Liga,” said Messi. “We need to make a lot of changes and we have to criticize our special offers. We are Barcelona, the team that should have won all titles,” the Argentine added.
