Lionel Messi El Clasico Record Since June 2018

Messi played Barcelona's 2-1 defeat to their bitter rivals last night and was rather anonymous throughout.

The Argentine forward has now failed to score in 7 of the last 7 clashes since when Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid.

Messi's last goal contribution against 'Los Blancos' came in May 2018 in a 2-2 draw which also saw CR7 get on the scoresheet.

He had his chances to score yesterday but saw himself denied by a Thibaut Courtois save as well as a last-ditch tackle from Ferland Mendy.

The 34 year-old's evening went from bad to worse when the rain fall in the second half.

First half goals from Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos gave Madrid their back to back El Clasico win since 2007/2008

Victory for Zinedine Zidane's side means Madrid now sit two points ahead of Barcelona in the La Liga table. And they are on top of the league.
