Messi has played more minutes than anybody else this season
Spring is here and the most important period of the season too. Luis Enrique's squad is now ready to face Manchester City in the Champions League and play the Clasico that may decide the league. With Messi, Suarez and Neymar playing really well in the recent matches, now it's time to have a look at how many minutes have the footballers played this season.
There's only 12 league matches left, the Cup final and... in the Champions League it could be from one match to six (if Barça reaches the final). So the squad could play 19 matches more if everything goes perfect.
- Ten footballers have played more than 2.000 minutes, and six, more than 1.000.
- Messi has played more matches than anybody else and is the only one with more than 3.000 minutes. The second is Jordi Alba with a difference of almost 7 matches with the Argentinian.
- Mascherano is the third player with more minutes, but as a centre-back he played less than Mathieu. From the Argentinian 2.620 minutes, 1.863 has been as a defender and 759 as a midfielder.
- Rakitic is the second midfielder with more minutes, behind Busquets and in front of Iniesta and Xavi.
- Alves has played more minutes than Neymar, but only 24 more.
- Munir El Haddadi, has played more minutes (817 ') than first team fooballers like Sergi Roberto (564') or Douglas (236').
