Few Barcelona’s free kicks

Last Wednesday, in the Copa del Rey match against Espanyol, Lionel Messi scored his fourth seasonal goal coming directly from a free kick. This was Barcelona’s fifth seasonal free kick goal, if we add Neymar’s equalizer against Atlético Madrid.

In the below image you can find a schematic visualization of these free kick goals, along with some free kicks that hit the goal post and/or cross bar.

So, thinking about fouling Barcelona’s players close to the penalty area and preventing their run? Maybe that is not a great idea.

    Hello… Seeing as you gathered data for this picture, I was wondering whether you might have the total number of Barcelona FKs shot GOALWARDS handy. I see there are 9 pictured; how many were there in total/what’s our “danger” percentage?

    Hi. Unfortunately I don’t have the number of total free kicks taken by Barcelona. I will try to find it…it should be available somewhere.
