The FC Barcelona could not go back to impose his law in Santiago Bernabéu, and the Real Madrid remained with the triumph and the leadership of LaLiga. The Catalans had of occasions to decant the scales to his favour, but did not take advantage of them and the fortune alió with Vinicius Jr and Mariano Díaz, that attained to beat to an excellent Marc-André ter Stegen to do that the title situate , for the moment, a bit more near of the capital.
Between the big surprises of the meeting was Leo Messi, that neither offered his usual level. The one of Rosario was more human that never in the coliseo 'merengue', since in spite of throwing of the car in the first-half, sank with the rest of his mates in the second.

The Argentinian has not attained to aim goals or assistances in the five crashes that has faced without the Portuguese dressing of white, a register that contrasts with his performance when his main opponent still was confront and his motivation was intact. The five previous duels finish them with five targets, a definite pass and a shot that crashed in the wood, an upper and much more effective performance..
This situation is relatively easy to explain, since without an individuality as 'CR7', the Madrid has reinforced like team and has found more eases to brake to an alone footballer. When they have cortocircuitado to Messi, have had problems with other stars like Luis Suárez, but with a group in picture by the injuries and Antoine Griezmann without adapting , this time there was not way to mark differences.
