Messi: Barcelona players silenced media doubters

Barcelona played without fear to thump Real Madrid last night, says two-goal hero Lionel Messi.

After the 6-2 thrashing, Messi said: "I'm very excited. It's great what we have done for Barcelona. We had to go for the match from the beginning. And we did so.

"We played without the fear about the things you (the media) said about us.

"We played the perfect game and we're now much closer to winning the league."
