The matches follow each other and are similar for Lionel Messi in Ligue 1 …
The performance delivered by Lionel Messi, Wednesday, two days after the controversy caused by his seventh Golden Ball, will not silence his despisers. The Argentinian, who launched his evening by presenting his trophy to the public at the Parc des Princes, was indeed transparent. Repositioned in the axis following the absence of Neymar, the former Barcelona did not manage to make any difference.
Three days after distributing three assists in Saint-Étienne, the native of Rosario this time remained completely silent, taking his part in the 0-0 conceded by PSG. This zero point obviously does not improve his statistics in the Paris jersey. After eight matches in Ligue 1, Lionel Messi still has only one goal, the one scored against Nantes on the 14th day.
The now seven-time Ballon d’Or has never been worse in his career. This is his lowest total since his Barca debut in the 2005-06 season when he essentially had to settle for a substitute status with Barcelona. It is not, however, for lack of trying. Lionel Messi has only one goal despite no less than 31 shots attempted, which makes him one of the most clumsy attackers in the championship.
