With FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi failing to score in El Clasico against Real Madrid this past Sunday, his shocking record in the famous fixture since Cristiano Ronaldo left Los Blancos has been revealed.
The 32-year-old is the record scorer in Clasicos with 26 goals, which is eight more than both Alfredo De Stefano and Ronaldo who share second place.
Messi has popped up with important strikes against the 13-time UEFA Champions League winners on many occasions, but of late, the Argentine has failed to have much of an impact on the fixture.
The Barcelona superstar has not scored or assisted in his last five appearances in El Clasico, with his last goal contribution against Los Blancos coming in 2018 when Ronaldo was still at Real.
Why do you think Messi has struggled against Real of late? Let us know in the comments section below.
