This could very well be the case. The defence needs changing, Xavi doesn´t have eternal life either and Messi can´t carry the load on his own in offence. Barcelona will have to rebuild.
Although there is no love lost towards Real Madrid from me, kudos to them for this performance. It was quite funny by the end to see Barcelona be this powerless against Real Madrid for a change
