“We didn’t expect how it ends, but this loss characterizes the entire season. We are a weak team, we won due to the strength and motivation. Barca lost a lot of points where it is not supposed to do that. Real Madrid did their job. After the resumption of the season they have not lost a single match. We lost a bunch of points, although Barcelona is obliged to win every game. I have already said that with this game it will be hard to win the Champions League, and now we see that this is not enough even to succeed in La Liga. We need to take a break and think about the Champions League. Need to change a lot and be self-critical. With this game we don’t go in and “Napoli”, — quotes the perennial leader of the Catalans Lionel Messi authoritative publication Marca.
By the way, thanks to this title, the “real” bypassed “Barcelona” on the number of trophies. Now they have a “creamy” 92 (34 wins in the national championship, 19 in the Cup, 11 in the Spanish super Cup, 1 in League Cup and 13 in European Cup/Champions League, 7 in the FIFA club world Cup, 4 UEFA super Cup, 2 UEFA Cup, 1 — Cup Eva Duarte), while the Catalans — 91 (26 victories in the national championship, 30 — Cup games, 13 in the Spanish super Cup, 2 — in the League Cup and 5 European Cup/Champions League, 3 in the FIFA club world Cup, 5 UEFA super Cup, 4 in the Cup winners ‘ Cup, 3 — Cup Eva Duarte).
