Messi: Barca Fans Want Real To Lose UCL Final



FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has revealed who he wants to see win this season's UEFA Champions League.

The Argentine, whose side were eliminated by Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals, wants to see Diego Simeone's team, rather than Real Madrid, lift the title.

"Always for Barcelona, the fans don't want to see Real Madrid win anything, as they also feel toward us," he told ESPN.

"But, in the end, it is a final that they made it to again and, for us, we just need to focus on what we can win.

"We have two finals left, and it would be great to end the season winning them both.

"It also would have been great to have been in the Champions League final, but it wasn't to be. So winning two of three would be spectacular."

Messi also commented on Atletico's strength in depth, and praised Rojiblancos coach Simeone.

"They are a team that is very uncomfortable to play against. And (Simeone) deserves much merit for what he has done, and made his players believe in him and do things perfectly because he has been at this for a while now," he added.

"Apart from this, he has very good players and reserves, who also come in and do the job when they get a chance."

Real and Atletico will meet in the Champions League final on 28 May – they also met in the 2013/14 decide, when Los Blancos triumphed 4-1 on penalties after extra-time.
