A party more, Leo Messi went back to be the lighthouse of the FC Barcelona. This time, however, could not guide to the team to the victory. The '10' Barcelona was one of the most active players of the group culé in Saint Mamés, delaying his position in occasions to receive in the centre of the field and participating acutely in the pressure after loss, thing that cost him even a yellow card.

It was Messi the player culé that more struggled, the one who more protested and the one who appeared in all the facets of the game to support to his mates. Had in his boots the goal of the victory, but was not fine in the definition during the last minutes of the party and, alas, after the goal of Iñaki Williams sure that the wrong occasions will weigh in his consciousness.

It is not just, but like this will be. Because the captain of the FC Barcelona follows having the ambition to win titles with the club, and is the one who more suffer when this is not possible. In spite of the multiple rumours that speak on a hypothetical exit of the Barça to final of course, the true is that Messi feels that the Barcelona entity is his house and does not want to abandon it without decorating it with more trophies.

This season, still will have the opportunity to struggle by LaLiga and the Champions League, although the last eliminations in Supercopa of Spain and Glass of the King are not good augurios, neither much less. The Argentinian knows that the team has to improve the game and, especially, be more conclusive so much in attack as in defence.

But Messi can not it do all, and already multiplies the sufficient in each party as so that the FC Barcelona notice the minimum the absence of other important players of the staff, as Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé. His fault of puntería in the last parties affects to the Barça, but is not problem of 'The Flea' but of a bad planning that does not offer the alternatives that would have to have a team 'top'.

A necessary rest for Messi and the staff

And in this, Messi can not do at all. Now it will have of some days of rest, with trainings but without parties after the Betis-Barça of the next Sunday. After this party, the Barcelona will not go back to play until the following weekend. Some days that the staff culé has to take advantage of no only to follow working, but especially to order ideas, reflexionar and solve what was doing bad. Sometimes, after the storm arrives a peace rejuvenecedora. This expects the '10', although seen the seen, will not be easy.
