When you're Lionel Messi, going merely a game without scoring is a headline. So it was a big deal that Messi hadn't scored in La Liga for Barcelona in nearly 10 hours.
DROUGHT ― Messi is now without a goal in La Liga for almost 10 hours (591 minutes, and counting) #fcblive— MESSISTATS (@MessiStats) February 1, 2014
The drought ended with this penalty against Valencia.
Don't expect another dry spell anytime soon.
