(Photos) – No wonder Lionel Messi can’t score free kicks for Barcelona anymore with Cadiz latest side to deploy clever method

Posted by

Lionel Messi’s now taken over 50 free-kick attempts without scoring, which isn’t surprising at all considering the clever methods that sides are using to stop the Barcelona superstar’s magical ability.

Cadiz were the latest side to showcase the smart way to stop the attacker scoring from dead-ball situations, as they crowded their line and six-yard area on at least two occasions in last night’s win.

Cadiz upset the odds to reel off a surprise 2-1 win against Ronald Koeman’s side.

With this in mind, is it time for Lionel Messi and Barcelona to start experimenting with short free-kick routines that could massively catch the opposition off guard?
