La Liga matches so far, Barcelona has played four rounds less than two rounds. Messi fell into a rare trough, scoring only one goal with 15 shots in four games, still a non-sports goal. Even in natural years, Messi only scored 14 goals in 2020. Such achievements are not satisfactory when placed on others, but for Messi, the Argentine is being questioned overwhelmingly.
First of all, we need to understand that it is unfair to evaluate a player's level by mere goals, otherwise Messi, who only scored a penalty, would not be 5-1 Ferenc Varos. He was rated 10 points by the media. In the past two years, Messi’s position has gradually moved away from the penalty area. The more he kicks, the more he gets back, Harvey’s work organization is often promoted near the middle circle, and when he gets outside the penalty area, he often does Xiaobai’s work to send out the last threat. On the contrary, it rarely appears in the penalty area. This kind of play is very similar to doing three different jobs in the company. Although everyone praises you as great, you are tired and tired. Only you know whether you are happy or painful.
In recent seasons, Messi’s scoring method and tactical positioning have been changing. With the Argentine’s physical limitations and repeated dribbling impact on the body, Messi’s stable scoring method in the league is no longer to bring it by himself. The ball takes off. Before this season, it was mainly through Busquets or the central defender's dispatch ball to find space on the two wings. Messi swam to the front position at the top of the arc in the penalty area, and his teammates crossed and scored.
This year is destined to be a turbulent year for Barcelona. When Messi once again stands at the fork in the road of transformation, it will be a test for both Messi and Barcelona.
