New Camera Angle Shows A 'Fed Up' Lionel Messi Expressing His Frustration After Scoring Free-Kick vs Osasuna

It was a moment that summed up Barcelona's season. In the 64th minute, at 1-0 down, Lionel Messi, as he has done so often this season, netted an inch-perfect free-kick from range to keep the title race alive.

But once again, despite his best efforts, the Catalan giants crumbled when it mattered most. Quique Setién's side went on to record a quite frankly embarrassing 2-1 defeat against 10-man Osasuna after a last-gasp goal from Roberto Torres sealed their fate.

It was a disastrous end to what has been a bang average campaign in the league for Barcelona.

As result of their below-par performance at the Nou Camp, rivals Real Madrid were crowned La Liga champions for the first time since 2017 after a brace from Karim Benzema sealed all three points against Villarreal.

And for many, it was the reaction of Lionel Messi, both during and after the game, that echoed Barcelona's downfall of late.

The fact that the little magician expressed his frustation after netting a glorious free-kick to equalise sums it up perfectly.

Check out his reaction below.

After the full-time whistle, Lionel Messi gave a rare interview following Barcelona's defeat to Osasuna, slamming his team for being "weak" in their title defence.

"Madrid did its part by winning all its matches, which is impressive, but we also helped them to win this league. We have to be critical of how we have played, starting with the players, and the rest of the club.

"We have lost because of our mistakes and not because of Madrid's successes, as many say.

"The feeling on this team is that it tries, but that it cannot get the job done. Today in the first half they were better than we were and it seems we have to fall behind to react like we tried to do in the second half."

"We are going to have to change a lot if we want to do something..."
