Lionel Messi has SECOND-WORST shots to goals ratio in ALL of Europe’s top five leagues after underwhelming start at PSG
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN ace Lionel Messi has the SECOND-WORST shots to goals ratio in ALL of Europe's top five leagues.
The legendary Argentine has got off to an underwhelming start to life in Paris, being involved in just 12 goals in 17 games.
And just one of his six goals scored this season have come in Ligue 1.
His one league goal in 44 shots taken leaves him second-bottom across Europe's top five leagues when it comes to shots to goals ratio.
Only Manchester City's Joao Cancelo has performed worse in that department.
The right-back has netted once from 46 shots.
Messi was, however, involved in a goal for PSG on Sunday night.
The Parisians brushed aside Reims 4-0 and the 34-year-old star picked up his sixth assist of the season.

Messi's rival turned-team-mate Sergio Ramos netted his first goal for PSG.
The Spaniard scrambled PSG's second home after a smart save by the Reims goalkeeper.
On his goal, Ramos said: "I am very happy."
"In the end, work and strength always pays off. Like with the goal, I am happy to have played for 90 minutes. It is good to have taken three points. We know how important habits and routines are."
"I am gathering pace and the most important thing is to keep improving physically to bring my best to the team at the most important period.
"We have Ligue 1, the Coupe de France, and the Champions League. It is the best time to get in shape.
"The most important thing is to get back to my best by getting minutes and confidence."
