The Catalan giants now sit third in the league, just one point behind Real, who have one game extra to play.

Messi thinks those mixed results display that the strength of the teams across the league has improved.

Barcelona are back in League action on Saturday with their fixture against 4th place Real Sociedad, with what seems to be a tough test for the Catalan giants as they look to fight for the top position of the league against rivals Real Madrid, with both teams level on 34 points. La Liga? Everything is more even, anyone can beat anyone.

"They have been for several years and we notice that there is more equality, that any team beats any other team, which is increasingly hard to play as an away team".

"Barca v Madrid and Madrid v Barca are always special matches".

The gallery reported the incident to security, but Datuna has not been arrested. Before we get to the banana, we should consider where it was eaten.

"This makes everything more equal and more complicated. We are both in good form, but there are moments (where the form book goes out the window)". It is hard to play as an away team because the hosts have become very strong.

In their most recent match, a second-string Barcelona side defeated Inter Milan 2-1 in a Group F tie at the San Siro Stadium in Milan to send the latter out of the ongoing Champions League. "They have shown it in the last matches, in La Liga and in the Champions League", Goal.com quoted Messi as saying.

Messi was rested for that mid-week encounter with Barca coach Ernesto Valverde stressing that his non-selection wasn't an issue.

"We'll see what we do from Sunday, we're not thinking a bit beyond tomorrow's game".

"We must start from scratch because it is a new year, a new competition", Messi said, adding, "We learn from the past, from mistakes, and focus on the present".
