Messi blasts Barcelona team-mates after 3-2 defeat to Atletico Madrid


Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has blamed the “childish mistakes” made by his team-mates, for their 3-2 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup semi-final on Thursday night.

Diego Simeone’s men took the lead through Koke.

However, Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann scored to give Barca the lead.

The Spanish champions saw two goals ruled out by VAR, before Atletico delivered the sucker punch late in the game.

Alvaro Morata converted a penalty and Angel Correa sealed the win in the 86th minute.

Atletico will now face city rivals Real Madrid, who beat Valencia on Wednesday in the other semi, in the final of the first-ever four-team Super Cup competition.
