Messi is now struggling with goals. He runs more actively now, but he can't find a goal anymore. The most recent 46 shots have not been exchanged for a sports goal.
Against Alaves, Messi still failed to score. He has not scored in the last 5 rounds of La Liga. Messi's goal number stayed at 1, or a penalty goal, which prevented him from entering the top 50 scorers in La Liga. In fact, since the game against Naples on August 8, Messi has not scored a sports goal.
only scored 1 goal in La Liga, which is the worst data for Messi in the same period since the 2004-05 season. Messi stopped scoring and Barcelona's results were also affected. The last 4 rounds of matches were not won.
But it's not because Messi can't spell it anymore. Statistics show that Messi is running more aggressively this season than in previous seasons. He ran 7.7 kilometers against Alaves, and this season he averaged 7.6 kilometers per game. He averaged only 7.3 kilometers per game last season, compared to 7.4 and 7.3 kilometers in the previous two seasons.
But Messi’s shooting efficiency has dropped. He shot 10 times against Alaves, 5 times on target, but failed to score. He averaged 4.55 shots per game this season, 4.9 shots on target last season, 5.6 times last season, and 5.7 times three seasons ago, but he has scored more goals in the same period than this season. In terms of passing, he averaged 63 passes per game, compared to 64, 63 and 56 in the past three seasons, not much different.
Against Celta, Sevilla, Getafe, Real Madrid and Alaves, Messi did not score or assist. There is no doubt that Messi is at the bottom of his career. (Ivan)
