Messi will be the likely outcome.
No player has had greater influence on his team this past season than Messi, the closest after him is Pirlo.
Carried Barca on his shoulders for the entire season and doing so had the best individual season of any player in the history of the game. If he had gotten injured, it would have been beyond catastrophic for Barca.
Gentlemen, if you lose today you will continue to be the best in the world but if you win today you will be eternal.
