Lionel Messi: From genius to Euro Second worst

Lionel Messi: From genius to Euro Second worst

Football legend Lionel Messi’s plight in PSG includes a staggering stat.

The Barcelona legend has the second-worst shot conversion rate in Europe's top five divisions - one goal from 44 attempts.

All-time great attacker Lionel Messi has provided six Ligue 1 assists for PSG this season but netted just once.

Only Manchester City full-back Joao Cancelo is a less successful finisher than the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner, netting one of his 46 Premier League shots.

World-class attackers hope to convert almost one on four efforts.

And of course, Messi's dribbling and passing skills mean he is as famed as much for his making as for his taking of goals.

But the 34-year-old's form - and arguably his mood - have dipped since his summer switch from the Nou Camp.

It's claimed he is unhappy with the runaway Ligue 1 leaders' style of play under Maurcio Pochettino.

Messi did prove his sixth assist of the Ligue 1 campaign  as a sub in Sunday's 4-0 defeat of Reims.
