- The Argentine has been solely steering Barca's ship this season.
- He's had a few ups and downs during the campaign.
- Messi is currently out of action after La Liga and Champions League were suspended due to the coronavirus crisis.
- After getting a much-needed rest, the Barca captain will return stronger for the last phase if the campaign resumes.
The coronavirus crisis has forced many football competitions to be halted. The Champions League and La Liga are part of the competitions that were suspended. Most footballers are currently having a break in their homes.
It was revealed recently that he was playing through injury. Messi was reportedly feeling pains in his left leg. That had effects on his performances.
Before scoring four goals against Eibar in February, he experienced his longest La Liga drought in six years, failing to find the back of the net in four consecutive games in the Spanish top flight.
It's the crucial end of the campaign and Messi already appears to be feeling the weight of solely carrying the team's responsibility. In that context, the coronavirus break could end up being a blessing in disguise for the playmaker and Barca fans.
Messi is getting a much-deserved rest at the moment. If the season resumes, he will surely come back better and that spells doom for opposition defenses.
Leo already has 23 goals and 16 assists for Barca cross all competitions this season. He will surely be keen to improve his tally and add more fantastic records to his name.
With the Argentine refreshed and firing on all cylinders, Barca can go all the way and retain the La Liga title. Who knows? They could also end their four-year wait to lift the Champions League.
