'It was a very big disappointment for the season we have had so far'.

"I would be lying if I told you we can take something positive from this", midfielder Sergio Busquets told beIN SPORTS.

While the fact that this was the game that resulted in this record being set, it shouldn't overshadow the impact that Messi and Iniesta have had on the competition, and the glory and wonder they have brought it throughout the 99 other times they have taken to the field together. There are teams that will exploit that even more. "It is a pat on the back for the academy staff that people like Scott [McTominay] and Marcus [Rashford] are going up there and we're not seeing them again".

Two of LaLiga's most in-form teams meet Friday evening at Montilivi, as Girona's run of seven wins and a draw in their last eight at home comes up against Real Betis' six victories in their last eight away games. Ousmane Dembele, touted as the main replacement for the Brazil forward, was marred by injuries and wasn't able to establish himself as a reliable attacking partner for Messi and Luis Suarez.

One of the sights of the evening was Andres Iniesta, who was substituted in the closing minutes when they score was still 2-0 on the night, looking pensive in the Barca dugout and afterwards the Spain worldwide midfielder made a bad night worse for the Catalans when he spoke to the press and implied this could be his last season at the club.

"But when he doesn't perform the rest of the players, who are very good, they also don't perform".

He noted that Roma did so well, adding that the Italian targeted the right areas. Then they scored [again] early in the second half and at no moment were we capable of getting into the game because of how well they played.

They are unbeaten in La Liga and had only previously lost once all season, to Espanyol in the Copa del Rey.

In the Spanish league, Barcelona are undefeated after 31 games and lead La Liga by 11 points with Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid trailing in second and third. "On Saturday we have another match to play and we have to give our best to try to win the titles that are still achievable".
