FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi was in fine form on Saturday, scoring twice – including a cheeky free-kick – and breaking two LaLiga records held by Real Madrid players along the way.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see which players have scored against the most LaLiga clubs.

The Argentine assisted Luis Suarez's first goal in the Blaugrana's 6-1 drubbing of Catalan rivals Girona, before adding two strikes himself.

A brace from Suarez and Philippe Coutinho's first LaLiga goal for Barcelona rounded off the scoreline, but it was Messi who once again wrote all the headlines.

His assist for the Uruguayan's first strike was his 148th in Spain's top flight, breaking the league's all-time record held by former Real player Michel, as confirmed by LaLiga.

In addition, Messi also scored his first ever goal against Girona, scratching them off his list of teams he has never scored against.

Girona became the 36th LaLiga side Messi has found the back of the net against, writing his name in the league's record books once more.

In so doing, the 30-year-old broke the record previously and jointly held by legendary Los Blancos striker Raul Gonzalez and Athletic Bilbao's Aritz Aduriz, according to Spanish football statistics expert Alexis Martín-Tamayo.
