Barcelona confirm Lionel Messi has played his last game

Barcelona have confirmed they have given Lionel Messi permission to go on an early vacation.

Messi did not train with the rest of the squad on Friday and will not play in their last LaLiga game of the season against Eibar.

Barca are out of the title race mathematically, with the title to be fought for between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid on the final.

Messi will be on holidays ahead of the Copa America tournament next month.

This season, he won the Copa del Rey and in his 47 appearances (35 in the league, six in the Champions League, five in the Copa del Rey and one in the Super Cup) he has scored 38 goals this season.

His 30 strikes in LaLiga mean he is virtually assured of an eight ‘pichichi’ title as top scorer.
