Lionel Messi failed to score in the Clásico this Saturday, in Valdebebas, and equals his worst streak since he was a FC Barcelona player
The FC Barcelona fell this Saturday in front of the Real Madrid, in Valdebebas, by 2-1, with controversies and a strong deluge in the Spanish capital that intensified in the second part. The culés struggled to the end, but remained short and regresan to the City Condal with a bitter flavour and the impression that it could do more in the feudo madridista.
One of the biggest appeals for the party was to see what went to do Lionel Messi in front of his eternal rival, the Real Madrid, but 'froze' in the party and already has equalised his worst series without achieving convert in front of the White House. The last time that marked was in the Classical of 6 May 2018, in the tie 2-2. Since, blaugrana and madridistas have confronted in seven opportunities, explaining the one of this Saturday, and Messi has not arrived to the appointment of the goal.
The most curious is that Cristiano Ronaldo and 'The Flea' have the same time without marking in a Madrid-Barça, with the only -big- difference that the Portuguese forward abandoned the White House in the summer of 2018 and that Messi continues being the big leader in the field and changing room of the FC Barcelona.
Like this then , it has equalised his worst register of finish without marking, of seven, as in November of 2005 in the Bernabéu, and crosses his worst series without participating in any goal in front of the Real Madrid in all the competitions (seven parties followed). A statistics that annoying to the Argentinian and that results odd considering his performance this Saturday in the Gave Stéfano, when it was very enchufado and almost annotates an olympic goal, that the stick denied him.
Besides, with the deluge that fell in Madrid, Messi (and the majority of players) finished the party freezing, literally. The cameras of television attracted him titiritando of cold in full clash and had to abandon the field to change the T-shirt.
The last Classical of Messi?
Leo Messi could have visited the feudo madridista for the last time, at least with the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona. The 'crack' Argentinian finishes his agreement with the Barcelona group this summer and still has not decided if it will renew his agreement, by what could be the last time that Messi contests a Classical, the number 45 of his career.
The economic difficulties of the Barcelona group could be the key point for the future of the Argentinian. The Barça is conscious that, if it renews, would go down the wage, but equally would be a very high figure, inasumible for the club, by what the situation paints very complicated.
