The defeat of the FC Barcelona in front of the Cádiz has left more doubts that certainties and the situation in the domestic competition begins to be more than worrisome. The culés occupy the septima position of the classification, to alone three points of the descent and could be even worse. The team has not known to react and the team has been signalled, between them the captain of the club, Leo Messi, the one who although had some opportunities in Ramón of Carranza, has left a lot that wish in the last touch.

The rest that Ronald Koeman has given him to Lionel Messi does not have traido the effects that all expected. The rosarino has not answered the requirements in a party that was key for his team in the middle of the fight by LaLiga. Of course, it can not be the only distinguished, but if it is true that the Barcelona expects that it recover his best version, as it already accustomed in previous seasons. The 'Flea' has marked seven so many in this season, five from the point penalti, and the fans in this point demands him much more.

One of the points to improve of the rosarino is his effectiveness from the launchings of direct fault. He is the one who earns them in all the opportunities and sum several months without adding a so much to his account, specifically from 16 July of this year, in the last party of the season 2019-2020, that finished in a goleada in front of the Osasuna. Since, although it has had a lot of opportunities, has not achieved it.

The free shots were used to to be one of the specialitys of Lionel Messi. In total, sum 53 goals from the unemployed balloon. 47 with the Barcelona and six with his selection. In the last three seasons (from 2016), his effectiveness had been impressive. It registered 19 so many, including one -impressive- in front of the Liverpool in the party of gone of the semifinals of the Champions League 2018-2019. However, from which converted in front of the Osasuna, has not gone back to convert one.

It does not fit comparison with Cristiano, but...

The forward of the Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo, has more goals that Messi from direct fault, but also more years in the professional football. The player of the 'Vechia Signora' great 56 so many of this bill, 13 with the Manchester United, 32 with the Real Madrid, one with the Juventus and 10 with the Portuguese selection. The last that marked was two months ago, with Portugal in the League of Nations, the 16 of septeimbre in front of Sweden, a so much with which, curiously, celebrated his 100 goals with the T-shirt of the combined national.

Although it is true that mathematically Cristiano surpasses to Messi, the reality is that the effectiveness of the rosarino has been a lot of elder that the one of Ronaldo in the last seasons. At the end of the season 2016-17, Cristiano had 51, while Messi 34. Therefore, the sum in the three seasons last sample a goleada of the Barcelona captain of 5-19.
