Messi admits 'it takes a lot to get into the game' with empty stands.
The Barca captain hopes to see supporters coming back to stadiums as soon as possible.

Yes, very. It's horrible to play without fans. It's not a nice feeling," Lionel Messi said in an interview with Marca on Monday.

"Not seeing anyone in the stadium makes it like training, and it takes a lot to get into the game at the beginning. That's why we see such even games. It's very hard to win whoever you are playing against."

Fans have been absent from La Liga games since the Covid-19 outbreak in Spain in March.

As per reports, supporters will return to the stands in April 2021 when a vast part of the country's population receive coronavirus vaccines.

"The pandemic has caused football to change a lot, and for the worse," the Barcelona captain added.

"We are seeing it in games. Hopefully, after all this is over, we can get people back into the stadiums and get back to normal."
