Messi Makes History In LaLiga Once More

With Lionel Messi putting on another Man of the Match display in FC Barcelona's 5-0 thrashing of Deportivo Alaves on Sunday, he once again wrote his name into LaLiga's history books.

Click through the gallery above to see the players with most assists in Europe's top five leagues so far this season.

The Argentine scored a brace and assisted Ansu Fati's goal to finish his 2019/20 LaLiga campaign in style.

His two goals saw him bolster his lead in the Pichichi race, and he has now claimed the award a seventh time, breaking the previous record of six held by Telmo Zarra.

In addition, his assists also saw him better another milestone as he overtook former teammate Xavi Hernandez as the player with the most assists in a single LaLiga campaign.

His assist for Fati on Sunday was Messi's 21st in the league this season, bettering Xavi's record from the 2008/09 campaign by one.
