The Argentine uploaded an image to his networks to express his happiness after qualifying for the quarterfinals in Barcelona.
That gesture that can be seen on the Instagram of Lionel messi conveys relief and euphoria. The Argentine 10 needed such a performance, he needed to feel that Barcelona he was standing behind a league that slipped at the expense of Real Madrid and with a very low level of play.
The Blaugrana team gave good signs by defeating Napoli 3-1 and advancing to the quarterfinals of the Champions League and he knows that now there are three victories that separate him from the continental title.
La Pulga was the architect of the success at the Camp Nou on the Italian cast by leaving the skin, with two transcendental actions that were worth the second and third of the Catalans: a ball that fought in the area and that resulted in a strange shot to win David Ospina and a pressure that meant the penalty for Luis Suárez to score.
Two key goals to finish taking off in the result and achieve the long-awaited classification. And to shout it as Leo himself did in networks: “See you in Lisbon !!”, wrote the Rosario, words to which he added the emoticon with a wink and a thumb up.
