Sports: Messi Reacts To 3-2 Loss To Atletico Madrid

Barcelona's Lionel Messi reacted to his clubs' loss to Atletico Madrid by saying that his team-mates' performance was childish in the Spanish Super Cup, Diamond Hub 101 reports.

Barcelona slumped to a 3-2 loss to Atletico Madrid in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia as Angel Correa gave Los Rojiblancos the win four minutes to stoppage time.

The Argentine was able to score for the team but was not able to secure a win as he said they missed their opportunity...

It is a shame, we played a good game, after a long while we felt good again, we had it in control, dominated and pressed all the time. We let a great lead slip through bad mistakes when Atletico was already dead, but in less than 10 minutes they turned the game around that we should have already closed out. It is painful because it is an important title and we wanted to win it in the final, we showed a different approach to what we have shown against Espanyol and at the end of last year, we played a great game but sadly it wasn't enough for the victory. We did take a step forward today despite the loss but we do know that we have not been doing things the way we want, we can't afford to make these childish mistakes again.]

Watch the highlight

The finals of the Spanish Super Cup would be between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid.
