Elsewhere, Barca lost 2-1 although Osasuna were a man down. Osasuna took the lead in the fifteenth minute but Messi equalized through a second-half freekick, but the winning goal came in extra time by Eric Torres.

Messi lashed out at the team in the post-match interview, saying,” 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.”

If Barcelona’s season continues the same then champions league glory would be just a dream for them.
