Messi has not scored in the national derby for 425 minutes
“Without Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi has disappeared”, the Spanish newspaper “Aspen” made such a headline in a latest report, which said that since Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid, Messi has been in 5 national derbys There were neither goals nor assists. The departure of the Portuguese superstar also seems to make the Argentine superstar lose his presence in the national derby.
Messi has neither scored nor assisted for 425 minutes in the national derby. This data is in stark contrast to the previous one. In the previous 33 matches with Ronaldo, Messi scored 21 goals, and Ronaldo broke the Barcelona goal 18 times.
Ronaldo left Real Madrid last season, Messi did not participate in the first national derby due to injury. But after the Kings Cup semi-finals or away game against Barcelona, Messi did not score. Against Real Madrid twice this season, Messi has not scored.
425 minutes without real goals and no assists against Real Madrid, this is Messi’s worst personal performance against Real Madrid. Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have competed in La Liga for nine years. The two are rivals, but they are also stimulating the opponent to score goals. Peer Shuangjiao’s influence has spread to the whole world, and the two have also won many top honors such as the Golden Globe Award and Mr. Football of the World.
After Ronaldo leaves, Messi has not scored in the national derby
But now the situation has changed, and Messi also seemed lost when Ronaldo left. Not only in the national derby, “Aspen” pointed out that Messi’s performance this season is not satisfactory, not like a superstar. In La Liga away, Messi has not scored since December 1 last year. On December 1, away from Atletico Madrid, Messi scored the winning world wave, and on December 2, Messi received his sixth Golden Globe trophy. Since then, Messi has scored only one goal outside the Bernabeu, and it was the Spanish Super Cup match, the venue was Saudi Arabia, to be precise, not to be away . In other words, Messi has not scored away goals in the past 3 months. In fact, he has scored 23 goals this season, and only 4 of them have been scored away. One away goal against Eval, one against Levante, one against Atletico Madrid and one against Slavia Prague.
Messi has been in a bad situation in the past month. In the last six rounds of La Liga, he only scored in the game against Eval, but he staged his senior year. Failed to score goals against Valencia, Levante, Betis, Getafe and Real Madrid. No away goal against Naples, the King’s Cup against Athletic Bilbao, Messi missed a scoring opportunity.
“Aspen” stated that Messi left the Bernabeu stadium with his head down. The away defeats against Granada, Valencia, Levante and Real Madrid, the draw against the Royal Society and the Spaniard, put the team in a difficult situation. Messi himself hopes to improve his away goals. (Ivan)
