According to Goal.com Lionel Messi has admitted that everybody at Barcelona, wants Real Madrid to end this season without any trophy.
Madrid take on city rivals Atletico, in the final of the Champions League on May 28.
Although Barca were eliminated in the quarter-finals by Diego Simeones men, Messi is still backing them to win the cup.
“It is clear that the people at Barcelona do not want Real Madrid to win anything,” Messi told ESPN.
“It would hugely please Barcelona if Atletico beat them in the Champions League final.
“What Atletico Madrid have done is great, it is not easy to beat them. They are a very tough opponent and [Diego] Simeone deserves credit for their performances.”
The Argentina captain also stated that elimination from the Champions League was a huge blow, but is focused on winning a domestic double.
“The Champions League elimination was a major blow. We were much better than Atletico in the first half and could have decided the tie there. It was then very complicated in the return at the Vicente Calderon,” he added.
“It would be great if we can end the season by winning the Liga title and the Copa del Rey. We realise it will not be easy, though. We have two finals left, one in La Liga and one in the Copa.
“We spilled a lot of points in La Liga, but recovered just in time. We still have everything in our own hands.”
