Lionel Messi has had the beginning of campaign more atypical since it is a professional footballer. While till lately it stood out for being the engine of the FC Barcelona, the able player to change him the rhythm to a party and do the difference, independently of the rival to the that confronted , in these last months the star rosarino has showed more than uncomfortable in the field and, although it hurt to all the barcelonismo, has turned into an obstacle so that other members of the staff show his best version.

In this campaign, Messi has marked seven so many in 13 parties that has contested. Although it is not a bad figure, the fact that five of the goals that has converted have been from the point penalti, if it leaves a signal that something is happening with the captain of the Barça. If to this add him that it has been one of the players that more balloons has lost and that has dribbled much less (when it was one of his specialitys), the situation becomes more than worrisome.
