Messi staying at Barcelona has been huge for the club and Spanish football in general, especially after the league's other biggest stars left for foreign leagues - such as Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain and Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus - in recent years.
An early-season defeat in El Clasico to their bitter rivals has not helped their title hopes, but Koeman is still confident that Barcelona can end up victorious over Los Blancos in the battle for the trophy.

Barcelona in La Liga table
Barcelona are one of three teams to have 11 points, but have two games in hand over most of the teams above and below in the table
Koeman's side have only played seven games so far, having started the campaign later than other teams due to participation in the Champions League mini-tournament in Lisbon.
They will be looking to improve on their position this weekend, especially against Atletico Madrid, who sit above them in the table.
Another six points from their two games in hand would have Barcelona on 17 points, which would still be three behind current league leaders Real Sociedad.
