A month to forget - Messi only scored once in injury-interrupted October


Lionel Messi will be glad to see the back of October, having netted only once for Barcelona last month.

The Argentine attacker struck seven times for the Catalan club in October 2012 and added three more for Argentina in the same month, but scored only one goal this time around in an injury-interrupted four weeks.

In 2012, Messi hit a double in the entertaining 2-2 draw with Real Madrid at Camp Nou on October 7, bagged a hat trick in the astonishing 5-4 win at Deportivo La Coruna and added two more in the 5-0 win over Rayo Vallecano later in the month. And in between, he struck twice in Argentina's 3-0 victory at home to Uruguay in World Cup qualifying, then once in the 2-1 success against Chile in Santiago several days later.
