Barcelona keeper Pinto almost ran more than Messi in Atletico Madrid defeat

Barcelona goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto almost ran more than Lionel Messi during last night's Champions League defeat to Atletico Madrid. Messi was hardly spotted during the 90 minutes as Barca tumbled out of Europe at the Vicente Calderon.

The Argentine managed to run 6.8km during the game - while Pinto, in Barca's goal, managed 5.3km - a difference of only 1.5km!

Messi also averaged almost 64 touches per Champions League game this season - but last night he managed to take possession just 39 times.
