The five-time Ballon d'Or winner surpassed Andres Iniesta to become the player with the second-highest number of LaLiga appearances for the Blaugrana following their 3-1 victory over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

Messi, who has the most assists and goals in Europe's elite leagues so far in this campaign, added to both tallies in his 443rd appearance in the Spanish top flight. The 31-year-old also netted what was his 26th league goal in only his 25th LaLiga appearance in 2018/19 against Rayo.

As a result, according to WhoScored.com, Messi has now outscored 15 teams across Europe's top five leagues – one Premier League outfit, one LaLiga side, three Bundesliga teams, five teams from Ligue 1 and five clubs that are opponents of Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus in Serie A.
