The stat is pretty incredible, it is even terrible for Lionel Messi.
This time, Lionel messi did not save the FC Barcelona. The Blaurganas had the best chances during the Clasico on Saturday afternoon, but lost in their den at Camp Nou, as part of the 7th day of La Liga (3-1). The real Madrid made the difference in the second half thanks in particular to a penalty given by the VAR to Sergio Ramos.
The six-time Ballon d’Or just missed his face-to-face, right, in front of Thibaut Courtois, in the middle of the first period, before slowly but surely disappearing, unable to make the difference while Ronald Koeman had replaced him in position of number 10 of 4-2-3-1 behind Ansu Fati (replaced in point).
The statistic is terrible: “La Pulga” haven’t scored a goal, nor have they given an assist in the last 6 Clasicos against the Merengues. Either since Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus in the summer of 2018! Messi no longer knows how to sublimate himself during these big meetings between the two top names in Spain.
