Having failed to score in a match against Getafe, Messi went through the fourth match in a row unable to score a goal.
Last night, Barcelona won quite lucky with a score of 2-1 against Getafe thanks to the goals of Griezmann and Sergi Roberto. This victory helped Los Blaugrana temporarily level the score with the top team Real Madrid.
However, the ripple in this victory is that Messi has not been able to escape the drought of the goal. Statistics show that this is the fourth match El Pulga can not score for Barcelona. Earlier, the striker did not score in matches against Valencia, Levante and Real Betis.
Argentinian “superstar” is going through the longest non-goal series in the last 6 years. The last time Messi waited so long was in January 2014. At that time, this striker experienced 8 consecutive games not scoring.
Despite not being able to score in four games, Messi is still leading the list of goals in La Liga with 14 goals. In addition, this player also leads the assist list with 12 passes to the table.
The burden is on Messi’s shoulders when, at this time, two other Barcelona strikers, Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez, are out of action due to injury. Fortunately, in the past few rounds, Ansu Fati or Griezmann have all registered on the electronic board.
