Barcelona’s 100% win record this season has gone as they drew against their fierce rivals Atletico Madrid at the newly built Wanda Metropolitano. But still Barcelona would be satisfied with the result, all thanks to Luis Suarez’s late equaliser.
The Barcelona talisman Leo Messi and Luis Suarez are reportedly upset over Ernesto Valverde’s decision to start with Andre Gomes on such an occasion with the stakes so high.
Meanwhile Denis Suarez, who has recorded two goals and two assists so far this season, was left to sit on the bench and failed to play a single minute in their crunch clash.
There appears to be a rift in the Barca dressing room following the reports in the Spanish press earlier this week that Andre Gomes had claimed the Argentine picks Barca’s team.
However, Gomes denied the claims.
“I have not said anything against Messi nor the manager, Valverde. It’s all been invented,” said Gomes.
“I have too much respect for Valverde and for Leo to say something like that.”
Despite playing a draw against Atletico and Real winning 2-1 against Getafe, Barca still stands 5 points clear of the Los Blancos at the top of the table.
