Barcelona suffered a shock 3-2 Supercopa de Espana final defeat to Athletic Bilbao in a match that saw Lionel Messi sent off late on.
Lionel Messi was sent off for the first time in his Barcelona career after Inaki Williams scored a sublime goal that gave Athletic Bilbao a shock 3-2 win in the Supercopa de Espana final.
The Catalan giants were on the brink of a record-extending 13th triumph in the competition after Antoine Griezmann scored twice, either side of Oscar De Marcos' equaliser, to put Barcelona 2-1 up late on in normal time.
But Athletic, who knocked out holders Real Madrid in the semi-finals, equalised through substitute Asier Villalibre in the 90th minute and Williams scored early on in the additional period to turn the tie on its head.
Messi was then sent off in the dying moments of extra time when VAR spotted an off-the-ball incident involving Villalibre, as the Argentinian violently knocked the Athletic player to the ground.

this barca self eeh, all they needed was to defend for just few mins against dt 90mins goal but they choosed to bottle it as usual..
the barca i watched can't win PSG with this level of unseriousness, no matter how pained am just happy that the next barca election is near, maybe a new president coming in would dump this boring koeman after this painful defeat and get a new coach and plan some key signings because this isnt the barca i knew as a fan..
the idiots jus spoil my weekend, some days are like dt sha...champions would always bounce back stronger

Barca has a big problem - they have a defence that simply cannot withstand sustained pressure from any decent opposition. This is what is frustrating Messi. How can you not hold on to a lead with only a few minutes to the end of the match against a decent opponent (fine, they beat madrid a few days ago but that should have been a warning to Barca). If Koeman doesn't address this issue drastically, the annual scandalous UCL defeat will be yet another certainty come February or March.

I guess there's always a first time for everything. For Messi, it's his first red card for Barca. It's sad cos he was very active in this game in his playmaking role. Congrats to Bilbao.

Messi and Ronaldo have gotten old... All these younger players of today see just after money, no passion....

Imagine Messi dey play football with clowns like braithwaite, de puig etc, and Ronaldo playing with bernadeschi, kulusevski, Ramsey etc, and worse these young guys can't run or juggle the ball
