Lionel Messi equals Barcelona's all-time La Liga record

Lionel Messi

The Argentine was the Blaugrana’s top scorer in 2014-15 for the sixth season, drawing level with Cesar Rodriguez’s feat.

Lionel Messi’s goals played a considerable role in leading Barcelona to the 2014-15 La Liga title, with Luis Enrique’s men finishing two points clear of perennial rivals Real Madrid at the table’s summit.

The Argentine star has been in scintillating form since the start of 2015 in particular and continues to break club records.

The four-time Ballon d’Or winner is already the Camp Nou side’s top goalscorer of all time and by netting 43 times this term he equalled another longstanding club record.

After finishing as Barcelona’s top La Liga goalscorer for a sixth season, Messi has equalled Cesar Rodriguez’s record.

The legendary forward played for the Blaugrana between 1942 and 1955, and is Barcelona’s second highest La Liga goalscorer on 190 strikes.

Few would bet against Messi continuing his mesmerising form for years to come, as the South American attacker continues to destroy club and national records that look set to stand for generations to come.

Messi can still lead the Catalan powerhouses to a momentous treble this season, with Copa del Rey and Champions League finals remaining to be played.
