See How Fans Trolled Messi Shivering On A Wet Day


Barcelona were the better side in the 2nd-half of their El Clàsico on Sunday night but fell to claim a point against 10-men Real Madrid. Real Madrid had doubled their lead before half-time through a lovely backheel from Benzema and a Toni Kroos' deflected free-kick that Alba failed to head out. Barcelona held the larger possession but were not clinical in the final third as they slipped to 3rd on the La Liga standings.


All eyes were on Messi who is having a sensational 2021 season in the league. Still, the Argentine is without a goal in his last 6 Clasico's meetings before the visit to Alfredo Di Stefano. The Blaugrana captain hit the post from a corner, forced a save from Courtois, and had most of his shots blocked by crowded White players. Zidane got his tactics right against the 6th time Balon D'Or winner.

Messi's sad moments began when it began to rain heavily. The Argentine was even seen changing his shirt.


Probably he must have been affected by the cold as he shivered while taking a free-kick on his territory. Barcelona could have equalized but the maestro hit the wall with a straight shot that left Real Madrid to deal safely.

Many questions have arisen if Messi could thrive in England like he has been doing in Spain.


Well, Stefano's act answered all questions. I hope Manchester City had made their conclusions. Below is some of the reactions:
