Leo Messi He did not have his night at the Santiago Bernabéu. Real Madrid went over Barcelona, especially in the second half, and the Argentine did not provide what is expected and required.
The problem for him and for the Catalans is that it is not new. The data is devastating: for a player who has played 43 games against Real Madrid and has scored 26 goals, the drought that is going through is not normal. In the last five Classics, Messi has not appeared: neither a goal nor an assist.
The presence of Messi in the field is not only decisive for the statistics, but for how he forces his rivals to modify the entire defensive approach. He warned Sergio Ramos After the meeting: “Leo creates constant uncertainty”. However, it seems that in recent meetings they have known how to neutralize him.
The Messi’s last goal for Real Madrid It was at the end of the 2017/2018 season, on the 36th day of the League when they finished 2-2. The last attendance, even before: in the first leg of that same season, which also ended with victory culé (0-3), the ’10’ not only scored, but also gave an assist, which today is The last one he has contributed.
Among many other changes that have occurred since then, there is one that does not directly affect Messi or Barcelona, but Real Madrid itself: is not Cristiano Ronaldo. The drought of the Argentine in the last five Classics coincides with the march of the Portuguese to Juventus, although in the last one there was the former Real Madrid player … in a box.
