Messi holds Barcelona team bbq at home ahead of massive Atletico Madrid clash

Barcelona players held a bbq at Lionel Messi's home after their victory at Valencia.

After clinching an important 3-2 win over Valencia at the Estadio de Mestalla on Sunday evening, the Blaugrana are aiming to win all of their four remaining LaLiga Santander games.

A victory over leaders Atletico on Saturday would be a great boost in the team's confidence after last week's 2-1 defeat to Granada at the Camp Nou.

All the players who attended the meal did so along with their partners, as everybody is aware of the importance of the Atletico clash, reports Marca.

Following a tough start to the season, relationships between the players have improved considerably over the last few months.

Normally, they would meet at a restaurant, but this time they decided to have a barbecue at the captain's house.

Ronald Koeman's men went to Barcelona's training ground on Monday morning for a recovery session after Sunday's duel with Los Che.
