Many coaches and defenders have tried to find an answer to stop Messi for nearly two decades but have failed to come up with a formula for success. During his time at Barcelona, he was a nightmare for Real Madrid defenders and fans as the Argentine would often find a way to score against them in the Champions League or a La Liga match.
Veteran left-back Marcelo, who has participated in many duels with the striker, revealed a strange strategy to prevent M10 from reaching his best form.
Marcelo said: “Messi didn’t talk during the match and I tried not to talk to him because he was quiet. We always said we should let him be, because if we decide to hinder him, to provoke him, then Messi will be angry, if he is angry, he becomes more and more difficult to handle.”
Messi has participated in 45 matches with Real Madrid in all competitions. Messi scored a total of 26 goals, an El Clasico record.
