Did Barca surrender to Real Madrid after losing points to Celta?

Barca have lost their advantage in the La Liga championship race against Real Madrid after continuously stumbling since the return of the season.

If Barca lose the La Liga championship this season, they have to blame themselves for dropping the advantage in the race with Real Madrid.

Before the campaign came back, Barca was 2 points ahead of Real Madrid but at the present time, it is inferior to the same opponent. This was the result of Messi and his teammates being drawn by Sevilla and Celta Vigo, while Real Madrid won 5 matches.

Most regrettably, Barca has to lose the last minute victory at Celta Vigo. Before Aspas equalized, Messi twice assisted Luis Suarez to score, including the situation of fooling the opponent’s defense when investig a direct free kick.

After all, Barca is not only inferior in terms of scores compared to Real Madrid but also disadvantage in terms of sub-index. Specifically, in case of equal points in the final rankings, the Catalan team still has to be ranked behind due to poor confrontation (lost to Real Madrid 0-2 and draw 0-0).

Thus, Real Madrid with the latest victory over Espanyol is in control of themselves before the last 8 rounds with 71 points. both they and Barca have 3 home matches and 3 away games.

However, both have schedules with some dangerous opponents. Real Madrid will face European football teams such as Villarreal, Getafe, Bilbao, as well as relegation: Leganes.

For its part, Barca prepare to face the biggest obstacle is Atletico Madrid, then Villarreal is not easy either.

Barca can beat Espanyol, Valladolid, Osasuna, Alaves but clearly the risk of losing points lies in two matches against Atletico and Villarreal. If that happens, it will be the end of Quique Setien’s teachers and students.

What are the special terms of Messi’s “super contract” with Barca?

Barca and Messi have begun to negotiate on a new contract, which the Spanish press believes special provisions exist.

Lionel Messi, through his father Jorge Messi, has negotiated with Barcelona over a new deal that will last until 2023, when the current deal will end in 2021.

Barca’s offer to Messi was actually a “super deal”, because in a football era under the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Argentinian striker was still guaranteed the incentives to have one no two.

Specifically, Messi continues to receive a pre-tax salary of about 100 million euros a year (L’Equipe newspaper in February revealed Messi received 8.3 million euros per month).

According to the Spanish press, Messi is guaranteed to receive a large bonus for playing more than 60% of the matches every season as well as winning trophies with Barca, in which the reward will be more generous if winning the Champions League. League.

In addition, Barcelona can offer a “bonus extension” to Messi on the condition that no annual salary increase. This is a fixed amount that clubs usually pay (once) to players who agree to an extension after entering the final year of the contract. 

The extension bonus is usually a significant sum, as it is a compensation for a decision not to follow another offer that may be higher than the current club. For example, nearly two months ago, Neymar rejected an extension from PSG of up to 100 million euros.

Moreover, the new binding between Barcelona and Messi will include a special provision at the end of each season, similar to the previous Andres Iniesta. 

Accordingly, Messi can evaluate at the end of each season whether to continue with Barca or not, as long as not transferred to a club in Spain or the same tournament in Europe. Iniesta chose to play his final years at Vissel Kobe in Japan.

Clattenburg referee revealed the secret about Ronaldo and Messi

Reputable referee Mark Clattenburg revealed secrets about Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in an interview with Mail Sports yesterday.

Mark Clattenburg is considered one of the best referees of his generation. Clattenburg has led many important European and world football matches such as the 2012 Olympic finals, the 2014 European Super Cup finals, the 2015/16 European Cup final, or the Euro 2016 final.

Recently, Mr. Clattenburg shared with Mail Sports about the 5 players who left the deepest impression in his career. Specific lists are Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Vincent Kompany and Gary Speed. In particular, Clattenburg especially praised Ronaldo and Messi.

“What I admire most about Ronaldo is his ability to pull the whole team up when they are down. When I first met Ronaldo on the pitch when he was a young player in the Premier League and then at Real Madrid, he always knew how to shine. At that time, I knew that I was standing on the field with a really special player who could change the game immediately.

“I was very disappointed when he got injured early in the final (Euro 2016) because the game lost a great player. But I have never treated Ronaldo more specifically than the other players and I think that’s why we have a good relationship.

Trọng tài Clattenburg tiết lộ bí mật về Ronaldo và Messi

Ronaldo donated his signed shirt to referee Clattenburg after the Euro 2016 final, although the British “black king” did not ask.

For Messi, the referee Clattenburg was really impressed with the way the Barca striker handled the ball.

“I was very confused when I first stood with Messi on the field, it was Barca vs PSG. At the time, I thought, ‘My God, this is unbelievable”.

When you are an referee, you have a habit of watching the ball move anywhere, anytime. But with Messi, you can lose sight of the ball. So imagine what the defenders look like in the face of Messi.

“I warned Messi in the first match against PSG when he fouled an opponent, but Messi never complained or said anything. He usually never gets into a fight. But as an referee, you want to stand on the pitch with Messi because you know it can be a special match”.

Finally, Messi had a deal with Cirque du Soleil and sunglasses brand Hawkers.
