Lionel Messi has been shattering records throughout his career now. It is pretty common for the magician as he is arguably the greatest footballer of all time. The Barcelona talisman delivered a massive performance yet again on a historic night for him.
The Blaugrana traveled to Real Sociedad for an away game and ended up winning 1-6. This La Liga win maintained the four-point gap between them at Simeone’s Atletico Madrid. They are now four points behind the leaders and they are in top-notch form. Ronald Koeman’s men have not lost a single game in all of 2021 so far, which is a massive achievement.
Lionel Messi has another historic night
The Argentine went on to have a massive historic night. For starters, he broke the most appearances record with total appearances of 768 games. Messi went on to break the record of former teammate and Barcelona legend, Xavi Hernandez.
Leo scored a brace in Barca’s win over Sociedad. This took his La Liga tally to 467 goals. This number is outrageous as he now holds the record for most goals scored in a single league in all of Europe. In La Liga, he is way ahead of former Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo who has 311 goals.
Record after record shattered by the magician year after year. This is getting pretty usual for the playmaker. He has had a massive impact on Barca this season as he has 23 goals for the team. The Argentine went onto have 20 plus goals for 12 continuous seasons. From consistency to top-notch performances and career accolades, Lionel Messi does have it all in order to be termed as the greatest footballer of all time. Messi is a certified legend and a talisman for the Catalans.
Will Lionel Messi stay at the Nou Camp next season or will he depart?
