Messi traveled from Barcelona to catch up with his best friend, Suarez, who is on the verge of winning LaLiga. Suarez was passed on last summer after being declared surplus to requirements and too costly to maintain at the Nou Camp, much to the chagrin of talisman Messi.
Suarez is one game away from claiming the title with his new club at the detriment of rivals Real Madrid, after a stellar season in the capital for Diego Simeone’s side.
The pictures of the two buddies were splashed through the front pages of Spanish newspapers on Wednesday, with Marca dubbing Messi “Atletico’s 12th man.”
Suarez recently became an even bigger hero in Madrid. It was after scoring a crucial 88th-minute winner in a consolation victory over Osasuna. To keep Atleti at the top of the table. They already lead Madrid by two points heading into the final match of the season.
Atleti will be crowned champions if they defeat Valladolid. But any slip-up could be exploited by city rivals Real, who host Villarreal.
Messi and Barcelona were recently eliminated from contention following a humiliating 2-1 loss to Celta Vigo. And a 3-3 draw with Levante. They still have a two-point advantage over Madrid going into the season’s final match.
Antonella Roccuzzo, Messi’s wife, shared a photo of the dinner party on social media. Which included herself and Messi, as well as Suarez and his wife Sofia Balbi, with the caption: ‘Adding moments together.’
