Over the years, Leo Messi has created amazing numbers in the historic competition between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. The Argentine played a total of 44 games, scoring 26 goals (including 15 at the Bernabeu), and recorded 13 assists. His performance in “El Clasico” on Saturday is equal to that of Sergio Ramos’ record, while in the other two categories, he is the record holder. Its collapse is also hard to predict-Sport.pl reporter Jakub Kręcidło wrote this article before the 30th round of La Liga. Messi did not improve his achievements, and even performed worse in terms of statistics.
Sergio Ramos said before the game: “Leo may not be able to shoot, but he is so good and still makes you feel uncertain.” In general, according to the “OpraJose” portal, Leo Messi has seven. Beat Thibaut Courtois on the second chance, but did not use any chance. In terms of Argentina’s scoring chances in the League of Cracoric, this is also the highest score, which does not include the November 2005 match at Santiago Bernabéu.
Another frustration for Messi may be that Saturday’s game against Real Madrid was the sixth time the 33-year-old failed to beat the Royal goalkeeper in all competitions. This is the longest series in the Argentine’s career.
Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema remembers Saturday’s game even more. In the 13th minute of the game, the French player showed an amazing blow with his heel, thanks to Real Madrid’s lead. With this goal, he left a mark in the history of Real Madrid’s scorer. Karim Benzema “has entered the league seven times in a row, becoming the fourth Real Madrid player of the century to do this.” The 33-year-old has therefore joined the glorious group of players, including Ruud van Nistelrooy (2007), Gareth Bale (2018) and Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese did it four times.
At the same time, Barcelona “rises” to fourth place in the club rank (10) among the teams with the most goals scored by Benzema.
Real Madrid, thanks to the victory of El Clasico, leads La Liga with 66 points. The second-ranked Atletico Madrid team also has the same heritage. FC Barcelona is in third place, just one point behind. The last goal was Benzema’s 19th goal of the season. Leo Messi led the standings with 23 goals.
