Messi, 9 Goals; Real Madrid, 9 Goals, Do You Think Ronaldo Will Still Catch Up (Drop Your Contributions)


 Messi currently sits on goal level with the entire Los Blancos’ squad, highlighting the issues facing Zinedine Zidane this term.
RealMadrid, the reigning European champions have failed to score, for the first time in 74 Liga games, and couple d with last night’s shock loss to Real Betis, Barcelona striker Lionel Messi now has same number with the entire Real Madrid club combined, with nine goals scored in the Spanish top flight.

Hotly tipped to walk the league after their impressive exploits last season, as well as yet another poor transfer window for Barcelona, Madrid have gotten off to an extremely poor start domestically to raise questions over Zinedine Zidane’s attacking options.

Barcelona, without the now sidelined Ousmane Dembele, their big summer transfer, continued their unbeaten start to their own campaign with a 6-1 hammering of Eibar on Tuesday. In that game, Messi scoring an amazing four goals against the Basque side.


The fortunes of his rival, Cristiano Ronaldo’s side sit in stark contrast, with Madrid recording 3-0, 2-2, 1-1, 3-1 and 0-1 results, respectively, the worst of them coming in last night’s loss, a game in which Ronaldo himself returned from a five-match ban.

The Portuguese’s return to action was an underwhelming one as the result suggests, with the Ballon d’Or holder having 12 shots on goal but registering only two on target, providing yet another worry for Madrid when compared to Messi’s four-goal performance against Eibar.

During the period in which Ronaldo missed five clashes due to shoving the referee in the Spanish Supercopa, Messi has been on the winning side, banging in goals in each of his own league clashes, picking up a double against Alaves, a hat-trick against Espanyol, before his quadruple on Tuesday.

With his Clasico rivals defying the odds by sitting at the top of La Liga with 17 strikes in the goals scored column after a quick start to the season, Zidane faces the tricky task of swiftly turning around Madrid’s fortunes or risks giving away the title before the campaign gets properly under way.

Atletico Madrid is always a threat, and they currently sit third behind Sevilla with same goal difference. With Messi already equalling the total goals scored yet by Real Madrid, will Cr7 be able to catch up with him this term?
