Messi doesn’t finish game against Atletico Madrid

Radamel Falcao was the one who got Atletico Madrid off the mark with a goal just after half time and Barcelona had to wait til late in the game to even things up with a strike by Alexis followed by an own goal by Atletico’s Gabi from a shot by David Villa.

It was difficult for Barca because Argentine Leo Messi suffered a relapse of his hamstring injury. If that wasn’t enough, Barca then had to continue with ten men as Tito Vilanova had used all three subs.

Barcelona still aspire to reach the magic 100 points in the league despite being crowned La Liga champions four games shy of the end of the season after Real Madrid failed to overcome the 1-1 draw at Cornellà against Espanyol.

Atletico Madrid tried to make a game of it ahead of their Copa del Rey final against Real Madrid on May 17th but instead, looked bewildered as the game went the other way with Barca down to 10 men and the Argentine off the pitch.

Barca now have 3 games left and need 9 points in total to make the magic happen and finish the season with 100 points.That means 3 wins from 3 games. It can be done although two of the games may be difficult. The ones that may present problems are the local derby with Espanyol, who needs the points, and the last game of the season against Malaga. It’s not an impossible task and can be done, especially by Barca.

With just 3 games to go, we may have seen the last game of the season with the Argentine in the starting eleven. Obviously, his hamstring problem hasn’t cleared up the way it should have done and we’ll have to wait until the Barca medical staff make a statement to get the full facts.
