Lionel Messi conceded that no club can win matches when they play poorly the way Real Madrid can. Madrid is in their third straight Champions League final. Barcelona last was in the Champions League Final in 2015.

"Position by position, Madrid have the best players in the world," Messi told TyC Sports. "[Barca] do as well, but Madrid have something that only they have. When they play badly, they still get results. We have to be the far superior side to win.

"The Champions League [loss was a mistake]. Given the [4-1] advantage we had before the second leg, we [should have reached] the semifinal. It was a huge disappointment.

"[But] it motivates me to see Madrid in the Champions League final again; to see them winning leagues. I want to win the Champions League every year. I want to be a league champion every year -- it's what we all want."
