    Diego Simeone and his Atletico Madrid players went to the Nou Camp with the sole aim of getting all three points knowing that short of that could hamper their chances of lifting the coveted La Liga title. They gave their best but one moment of brilliance from Lionel Messi was all Barcelona need to secure all three points and brightened their chances of lifting the La Liga title.
    Both Diego Simeone and his Barcelona managerial counterpart, Ernesto Valverde, praise Lionel Messi star quality following Barcelona's 1-0 win on Sunday afternoon. Simeone claimed that Lionel Messi brilliance made the difference for Barcelona in Sunday's 1-0 defeat.

    Lionel Messi scored a wonderful free-kick in the first half which proved to be the difference between the two teams and moved them eight points clear of Atletico Madrid on the top of the table and Simeone admitting the difficulties of repeating Atletico Madrid's "impossible" title win of 2013-14

    Simeone explained in his post-match press conference. "If we take Messi and put him in an Atletico shirt, we win this match 1-0, Messi is a special player, he made the difference.

    "We have no doubt that we can get closer to our objectives. What we can't do is distance ourselves from the numerical reality that Barcelona and Real Madrid have been dominating for 14 years, we did the impossible [in winning the 2013/14 title] and it's hard to repeat that."

    It was an eagerly anticipated match, a win for the Ros Blancos would have cut Barcelona lead to just two points but the game it lacked the usual spark of a heavyweight clash there were few opportunities in the game, but Simeone believes it was a very even encounter.

    "It was an even match, I don't think we lacked application in the first half, however, we didn't see our best until the second half. The game is 90 minutes and there's always stages when you don't play well. There were very few chances in the game and while we didn't attack in the first half, in the second we were closer to being the team we truly are."

    Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde also applauded Lionel Messi, claiming the title race is still alive with 11 games left to play.
    "There is no player like Messi in the world," he said. "Obviously there are several matches left, but we have taken a step forward. We'll see what the future holds.
    "It was a very important game because being eight points ahead is not the same as two."

    Messi scored his 600th goal to beat Atletico and surely clinch La Liga for Barcelona If he were just a goal scorer it would be astonishing, but the fact he’s also the best dribbler I’ve ever seen and as good a passer as I’ve ever seen makes him the best I’ve ever seen.

  2. Messi is too good to be compared with any other football, he's beyond words, they say he was poor at scoring freekick, he decided to prove them wrong. Not only did he prove them wrong, he made a fool of them. Messi the GOAT

  3. Messi is just too amazing, indeed he was the difference, I just repeat what Gary Lineker said. If Messi were just a goal scorer he'll still be the best. Considering the fact that he scores dribbles, assist, makes some unbelievable passes makes him better than the GOAT.

    Messi is very a very player, he can change the game at any time, that makes him diffferent from other players. When it comes to free kick its like a penalty to him very accurate. I am not his fan anyway i do appreciate him
