Earlier yesterday, Lionel Messi’s Barcelona faced Getafe in La Liga. The Catalan club won the match by a 2 – 1 goal. Lionel Messi could not score any goal against Getafe. It seems that in La Liga Lionel Messi is forgetting to score goals. He is suffering from goals drought. Is it fully true but Messi is still the top scorer in La Liga chart.
Against Getafe earlier yesterday at the Nou Camp, the Argentine striker controlled the midfield. He has taken a total of six shots. Among them, two were on the target. He took control of the ball from the opponent a total of five times and created the opportunity for goals three times more. Antoine Griezmann scored a goal by his assist. Considering all, in La Liga, Messi’s name has connected with Barca’s last seven goals as we know. So, what can the fans of Messi think of him?
But yes, there is something to worry about. The fans of Messi are worrying truly. It seems that Messi is forgetting something. He is forgetting to score goals! Including the last match of Barcelona against Getafe, the Argentine star could not found the net in the last four league matches consecutively. Considering the last six years, it is the very first time of Lionel Messi that he is suffering from goal drought. Before Getafe, Messi could not get the goal against Valencia, Levante, and Real Betis. In the league, Messi faced the same fate for the last time in the last January 2014. Back then, he could not find the net for the eight matches consecutively in La Liga.

But if we look at the statistics of the current season of Messi, it does not look like that actually. By playing 19 matches in the league, the Barcelona captain has scored a total of 14 goals and that makes him the highest scorer in the ongoing season in the league. Among them, he has found two hat-tricks also. Against Mallorca and Celta Vigo, Messi scored the two hat-tricks as we know. But considering the creating opportunity, Messi is extremely consistent. In the last three matches in La Liga, Messi assisted six times out of the seven goals.

The highest six times Ballon d’Or winner is also a legend of creating opportunities. Before the last three matches, Messi also played twenty matches so far. He assisted six more times back then. In that case, if we consider Messi has forgotten to score goals, but still the Barca forward is not forgetting to assist. In the league, by playing 19 matches, he assisted the highest 12 times so far.
