Seeing his teammates drop 2 points at home Camp Nou against weak opponent Eibar, Lionel Messi could not hide his disappointment.
Messi revealed his disappointment before Barca’s performance this morning
This morning, despite playing at home Camp Nou and only having to welcome the last group’s opponent, Eibar, Barcelona still could not win all 3 points. Martin Braithwaite missed a great chance in the first half when the penalty kick failed. In the second half, Ronald Araujo made a disastrous mistake leading to Kike Garcia’s opening goal. Fortunately for the Blaugrana, Ousmane Dembele made a point to help them avoid a humiliating defeat.

This disappointing result made Barca finish the year 2020 with sixth place, 7 points behind Atletico Madrid, despite having played more than 2 matches. 7 points is also the distance between the Blaugrana and the great rival Real Madrid in the La Liga chart at the moment.
The failure of Lionel Messi to play has affected Barca a lot. The Argentine superstar sits in the stands watching his teammates play due to an ankle injury and clearly, he cannot be satisfied with what happened at the Camp Nou.
Immediately after the final whistle sounded, the cameras turned to Messi’s position. M10 stood up from the front, looked down at the courtyard, then shook her head away in a frustrated manner. That expression was like “changing words” about how frustrated the 33-year-old striker when he saw his teammates play on the day he could not play.
This year, Messi has repeatedly expressed his frustration with the unsatisfactory results of Barca and even tried to leave at the summer market. The current Golden Ball remains to dedicate to the end of the season this year, but in the summer of 2021, when his contract expires, it is likely that he will leave the Camp Nou if the Blaugrana continues to be empty-handed.
