Lionel Messi issues Barcelona rallying cry on social media

The Argentine has taken to Facebook ahead of ‘four finals’ for the treble-chasing Catalans.

Barcelona can sow up the first of three pieces of silverware this weekend, as the Catalan giants take on Atletico Madrid in La Liga.

With a four-point advantage over perennial rivals Real Madrid at the top of the table, if Luis Enrique’s men win at the Vicente Calderon tomorrow they will be in an unassailable position.

Lionel Messi has been the side’s talisman this season, with the four-time Ballon d’Or winner playing some of the best football of his outstanding career to date.

The Argentine has taken to social media to issue a rallying cry for the Camp Nou side, stating the club’s remaining fixtures this season as ‘four finals’.


Quedan sólo 4 partidos y nos jugamos 3 títulos. El domingo tenemos la primera "final" en Madrid. ¡Vamos equipo!There...

Barcelona also face Juventus in the Champions League final and Athletic Bilbao in the last game of the Copa del Rey.

Messi is the undeniable frontrunner for the Ballon d’Or after a scintillating start to 2015 and will play a considerable part in Barcelona’ quest for a momentous treble.

The South American maestro has already breached the 40-goal landmark in La Liga this season and has an excellent past record against Atletico.
