However, Messi failed to score on the night as Real Madrid beat the Catalan 2-1 to go top of the LaLiga tally. For Madrid, it was Karim Benzema who opened the scoring in the 13th-minute of the game to unsettle Barcelona.

Things got worse 14 minutes later when Tony Kroos was on target with a free-kick from just outside the box in the 27th-minute of the game.

Barcelona’s defeat leaves them one point behind Real Madrid, who are now ahead of rivals Atletico Madrid on a head-to-head basis.

Both the sides have eight matches left to play, while Atletico has nine – their game in hand against Real Betis on Sunday.

“For me, the penalty is very clear and everyone has seen it. The way Martin falls, it has to be a foul. The referee may not see it, but we have a VAR for situations like this. However, it is better not to say more. The team has been mentally good and we deserved a decision in the penalty situation,” Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman said in an interview with Marca.
