[Video] Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona analysis: Is Lionel Messi keeping Valverde in a job?

Match review: Atletico Madrid 0-1 Barcelona

ESPN FC’s Craig Burley and Shaka Hislop break down Barcelona’s 1-0 win vs Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. The guys praise Lionel Messi for his winning goal for Barca, but Burley adds that Messi’s brilliance is “papering over the cracks and deficiencies” at the club and believes Ernesto Valverde might be without a job if not for his star player. Hislop says Barca are more reliant on Messi more now than when he won his first Ballon d’Or award in 2009.
