Speaking before Saturday's Sevilla clash, Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman urged his attacking forwards to do more to share the goalscoring responsibilities with Messi.

The 57-year-old Dutchman said at his pre-match press conference: "He [Messi] can't always do it alone. Messi has 18 goals.

"The other attackers, together, have the same number, he needs help.

"You don't always have to ask the best or the most experienced players to make the difference.
