Koeman Barca equal worst LaLiga start as Messi goal drought goes on

Barcelona have equalled their worst tally of LaLiga points after six games since the competition reverted to three points for a win.

Ronald Koeman’s side drew 1-1 with Deportivo Alaves on Saturday, meaning they have just eight points so far in the early stages of the 2020-21 season.

That is the same total as Barca managed at the start of the 2002-03 campaign when another Dutchman, Louis van Gaal, was in charge.

The Blaugrana are currently languishing in 12th place – already eight points behind LaLiga leaders and reigning champions Real Madrid.

It has also been a difficult start to the campaign for Lionel Messi too, as he has now gone 877 minutes without scoring in open play.

The Argentina international’s last open-play effort came against Napoli in the Champions League back in August, although he has scored three penalties and one free-kick since then.
