The year 2020 has started with goal problems for Leo Messi, who is having a bad streak in LaLiga. Despite his dry spell, the Barça captain has not move away from the Pichichi Trophy
The season 2019-20 is putting to proof to Leo Messi, that has had to do strong to follow leading to the FC Barcelona. The one of Rosario started the campaign overwhelmed by the injuries, and now that it has forgotten them, has had to give the face several times by a team that lives loomed by the criticisms and by his own doubts. In spite of everything, the '10' continue throwing of the car, even in the most difficult moments.
The year 2020 has braked to the Argentinian in LaLiga, where does a month that does not celebrate a goal. In total, have been six the meetings contested, and the captain barcelonista only could atinar in front of the Granada. Before, the RCD Espanyol contained him, and also did it afterwards Valencia, Raise, Real Betis and Getafe, certifying a bad series in this plot to which costs to find precedents. Few times abandons him the gunpowder.
But neither the drought has supposed a worry for the Barcelona, to the one who only have him recortado distance in the Trophy Pichichi. His 14 goals and 12 assistances -carries six followed and has consolidated them, precisely, when leaving to mark-, keep him in the highest of the table of realizadores, still far of the Boot of Gold because Ciro Immobile (26 so many) and Robert Lewandowski (23) do not stop of 'wet' in Italy and Germany.
To Messi follows him still Karim Benzema, the only inspired by forward a Real Madrid of minima. The 'merengues' deliver the targets and this allows them compete by all the titles, but to the hour of the truth, the nine is the one who commands. If it did not go by his 13 goals -to which adds also six assistances-, would be difficult that the pupilos of Zinedine Zidane were so up and litigating expensive to face with the culés.
Surprisingly, the third place in the classification keeps it Luis Suárez that carries a month lesionado. The one of Jump was the main support of Leo in offensive questions and had the bad fortune to see forced to go through the operating theatre. Before his knee gave him a touch of attention, the Uruguayan left the slat in 11 so many -and seven assistances- that to day of today allow him situate in a podium meritorio and deserved.
And by behind it appears a group perseguidor that tightens to the stars, headed by a tripleta of national artillerymen that wants to give that speak. Gerard Moreno, Ángel Rodríguez and Roger Martí have reached the ten, and are a go past of other arietes with hunger. Lucas Pérez, Chimy Ávila, Maxi Gómez and Joselu Sanmartín leave the slat in nine before the day of the next weekend.
