Last night we saw what Barcelona is capable of. Although they were not able to win the title, still they have finished the game on high a note. Barcelona loss against Osasuma made sure that Real Madrid wins Spanish title this year
After the loss against Osasuma, Messi gave one of his most honest interview, where he was very critical of the team's performance. After today's victory against Alaves, Messi said he is very proud of the team's performance.
This was Barcelona's last game of the season. But a win in this game will have their confidence high against Napoli in UCL.
The victory was a result of mutual efforts from the team with Messi scoring 2 goals while Suarez, AnsuFatti and Semed(contributed1 goal each.
Messi broke record of most assists in a single Spanish football season. He also scored 25 goals in 33 appearance.
Messi said that "As coach Quique Setien said the other day, we have had some very good games, some very good moments. But we have to do that more consistently now.
"Today, we saw something else. It was a difficult game to play and the team responded differently in attitude and commitment. It is a step forward for what is to come.
"We did a lot of self-criticism and realised a lot of things. We didn't have a great season.
"Today is a step forward in terms of attitude and commitment, which is what you always have to have. You have to at least match the attitude of any rival; if not more."
Now Barcelona's domestic duties are done. Now and their only focus is the game against Napoli on August 8 at Camp Nou.
