Everyone knows how good Lionel Messi is. The man has accomplished almost anything an individual player can accomplish and does so in a wonderful orchestra of class and skill.

This season, Messi is having another amazing individual season, scoring 20 goals in La Liga so far. But what is perhaps even more amazing is that he’s had the unfortunate luck of hitting the woodwork 13 times so far this season.

That’s amazing. Had the ball gone another few centimeters in one direction, Messi may have over 30 goals in the league already.

The Argentine has been on point this season. The precision in which his shots are careening toward the goal has been amazing and should his current progress continue, he may reach a new height for nailing the crossbar.
