Barcelona’s joint- worst LaLiga start as Messi goal drought continues

Sun 01 November 2020 | 8:43

Barcelona equaled the worst start to the domestic league in their Saturday game against Alaves.

Ronald Koeman’s

Barcelona

drew against

Deportivo Alaves

and added another disappointing result to the Catalans’ 2020-21 campaign. The team have managed to win only 2 games in their 6 matches while losing 2 of them. This is the same statistics as the 2002-03 season when Blaugrana was coached by Louis Van Gaal. Catalans are in the 12th position of the LaLiga table with an eight-point gap between them and LaLiga leaders

Real Madrid

.

The season has not gone well for Messi either as the Argentinian super star has not been able to score in open play for 877 minutes. His last open play goal for the club was in their previous season’s Champions League match against

Napoli

as they managed to eliminate the Italian side only to be humiliated in the quarter-finals by

Bayern Munchen

. Although Koeman’s tactics has added more creative qualities to Barca’s game, many believe that Catalan’s suffer from a lack of winning mentality. The team will be playing against Dynamo Kyiv on Wednesday before facing

Real Betis

four days later.
