Kriralok Desk: 4 goals in 24 matches. It would be a surprise to know that the statistic is that of Lionel Messi. The statistic behind the seven-time Ballon d’Or-winning star name is badly mismatched. But that is the reality. Messi is going to end his first season in League One badly if he doesn’t do something great in the other two matches. Of course, the responsibility of misfortune is not less here. This Argentine forward is not able to cut it in any way.
The night before, PSG drew 2-2 against Troyes. Americanos and Neymar went ahead with 2 goals in 25 minutes from the penalty spot but could not come back to win. However, if Messi’s shot did not hit the post, the disciples of Mauricio Pachettino would get the first victory after becoming the champion.
This time, Messi was deprived of a goal 10 times in total. According to the statistics website Optar (from the 2006-07 season), no footballer in the top leagues has been able to post more balls than Messi in a single season. Coach Pachettino therefore resorted to misfortune in answering the question, “It is only misfortune for his quality players, that is the only explanation.”
The La Liga champions did not have a good night like in League One. Real lost 1-0 to Atletico in the Madrid derby. Eleven coach Carlo Ancelotti rested some of the key players on the day. Despite a 2-2 draw with Stuttgart, Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich did not win the title. They are very happy at the end of the match.
AC Milan beat Hellas Verona 3-1 in Serie A to regain the top spot, with the rat race going on with city rivals Inter Milan. Inter with 78 points in 36 matches. AC at the top with 2 points more in an equal match.
Manchester City are well on their way to winning the English Premier League title with a 5-0 win over Newcastle. At the end of 35 matches, they are at the top with 3 points more than Liverpool (83).
