Original title: The most unlucky in history?Messi only scored 4 goals in Ligue 1 but shot 10 times
In the history of football, Messi is one of the most accurate shooting players, he once set a world record of scoring 91 goals in one year. But after joining Paris, Messi’s goals dropped significantly. This has to do with both his setback and his bad luck. In the 2-2 draw with Troyes in Paris tonight, Messi continued his bad luck after coming to Ligue 1. Messi failed to score 6 shots, but he kicked the ball on the door frame twice!
In the 37th minute, Messi hit the post for the first time. Mbappe steals a cross from the left side of the penalty area, and Messi is in a state of being double-teamed by five people in the middle. After flickering, Messi created a little space for himself, and the Argentine immediately shot low with his left foot without hesitation. Troyes goalkeeper Maureen made an extreme save. Maureen barely touched the ball with the tip of his right finger, and after a slight change of direction, the ball hit the left post. Neymar followed up with a supplementary shot and scored, but was called offside again.
In the 91st minute, the crossbar rejected Messi’s world wave lore again. Inside the arc of the penalty area, Messi kicked the iconic left-footed shot. The ball hit the defender with a slight refraction, which changed Messi’s precise calculation of the shot line. Maureen was helpless this time, but the ball was shut out by the crossbar after it went over the keeper’s fingertips. Although the score did not have any real impact on Paris, Messi was a little frustrated with his bad luck.
In the Ligue 1 season this season, Messi’s personal attacking statistics are really speechless. Although Messi provided 13 assists, he only scored 4 personal goals. In stark contrast to 4 goals, he has 10 goals in the league. The number of Messi’s shots on the door frame is NO.1 in the entire five major leagues. Messi, who has just arrived, does not seem to have “adapted” to the goal of Ligue 1.
For Messi, the mission this season is virtually over. In the last two rounds, Paris has no goals, the Argentine captain just needs to go through the motions and try to stay in shape. In the summer, Messi needs to be well rested so that he can save power for the World Cup in November. The Qatar World Cup will be the last time Messi will represent Argentina in the World Series. Messi led Argentina to the World Cup final in 2014, but lost to Gotze’s magic ball in extra time. Six months later, Messi still has the last chance to realize his dream of the World Cup in his career.
