Lionel Messi Sets New El Clasico Record

By Kurt Buckerfield - May 07, 2018 06:25 PM @KurtLaduma

Argentina superstar Lionel Messi scored in FC Barcelona's 2-2 draw with bitter rivals Real Madrid at the weekend and set a new El Clasico record in the process.

All eyes were on LaLiga on Sunday evening, where Ernesto Valverde's men hosted Zinedine Zidane's Los Blancos at Camp Nou – a game that did not fail to live up to the hype.

As is often the case in El Clasico, the intense affair featured many heated exchanges on the field, and another event that usually takes place during the encounter occurred, and that was Messi finding the back of the net.

The 30-year-old's second-half strike was his 26th goal against Real over the years, and it was also his seventh league strike in El Clasicos at Camp Nou.

Messi overtook Real legend Francisco Gento's previous tally of six LaLiga Clasico goals at Barca's home ground, having drawn level with the Spaniard's record in December.

The Blaugrana talisman has now scored 44 goals and assisted a further 18 strikes in 52 matches for his club this season.

@alizebucs1986 : being unable for Penaldo to finish the game or not to start certain matches doesn't concern The King so please do not make Penaldo's problems King Messi's.
