LIONEL MESSI was visibly furious with Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Marco Verratti after he failed to pass to him during their Champions League exit at Real Madrid.
Les Parisiens’ wait for a first European Cup continues after they lost 3-1 against Los Blancos at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side looked on course to reach the quarter-finals having gone into half-time 2-0 up on aggregate after Kylian Mbappe’s 39th minute opener.
But the visitors were left stunned as Karim Benzema scored a 17-minute second half hat-trick to send the French side packing.
PSG were made to rue their missed chances to leave Pochettino hanging on to his job at Parc des Princes.
Argentine ace Messi had a penalty saved by Thibaut Courtois in the first leg a fortnight ago.
And the 34-year-old was fuming with Verratti after he denied him the chance to get on the score sheet against Los Blancos in first half stoppage time.
Messi has now gone nine games against Real without chipping in with a goal or an assist.
The former Barcelona star was left in disbelief after Verratti decided against squaring for him as he instead chipped the ball to the back post.
But the move broke down after Madrid defender Nacho got a vital header before Courtois claimed the loose ball.

Messi instantly turned towards Verratti where he gestured he should have cut the ball back for him.
The incident didn’t go unnoticed by fans, as one Twitter user posted: “100 per cent he would’ve received that pass if that was Barca playing. He will be back 2023.”
Another said: “Messi used to score like 20 goals a season from this run alone, now he has to scream at Verratti for not playing the pass.”
A third added: “I have never seen Messi get angry like that with a team-mate during a game. It’s sums up everything wrong with PSG.”
This supporter remarked: “Easily about 200 goals of Messi career have come from this situation only he just don’t deserve PSG.”
One then simply stated: “Messi is angry ? Definitely something wrong with the team.”
Another commented: “I actually don’t understand why these lads don’t pass to Messi.”
