On Saturday Lionel Messi experienced another match without scoring as Barcelona lost more points at Celta Vigo.
For jersey No.10, with each passing day, the concern is rising, the player has struggled to add to his total as he heads towards his 800th mark, according to Marca.
Constantly in three games, Messi struggled to score, Balaidos’ was third. In 10 of 16 games, he went goalless under coach Quique Setien.
The last worst season for 5 times Ballon d’Or winner was in 2013-14, then in charge was Tata Martino at the Camp Nou, Messi managed to hit 41 goals, which is still way far from 26 – what he has scored now.
Messi hasn’t slipped below the 40-goal mark in the last 10 years. His tally of 38 in the first year of Pep Guardiola only seems out of reach now, even with just seven games to play in LaLiga Santander and at least one more in the Champions League.
