Messi:Tro­phy dou­ble would still be fan­tas­tic

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Barcelona star Lionel Messi says win­ning La Liga and the Copa del Rey would still be a “fan­tas­tic” sea­son for the club de­spite not re­tain­ing the Cham­pi­ons League. On Satur­day Barca and ri­vals Real Madrid go into the fi­nal match of the Span­ish sea­son still in the hunt for the ti­tle. Barca, who are one point ahead, face Gre­nada while Real travel to De­portivo. The Cata­lans will then face Sevilla in the Copa del Rey fi­nal on May 22 and Messi is ea­ger to win both tro­phies. “We have two fi­nals left, if we can win both that would be a great sea­son for us - we haven’t won the Cham­pi­ons League, but you can’t do it all the time,” said Messi in an in­ter­view with ESPN. “To win two out of three would be fan­tas­tic.”
