The Catalans were tipped by many to have an unsuccessful season after Neymar's controversial departure to Paris Saint-Germain, but perhaps Messi’s influence and impact was underestimated.
The Argentine grabbed 2018/19 by the horns and led his side not only to the LaLiga title, but the Copa del Rey trophy too. The side also never lost a single league game that Messi featured in.
The Albiceleste talisman finished the campaign as LaLiga's top goalscorer and top assists provider. While he found the net on 34 occasions, he also set up a further 12 strikes.
This is the second time the 30-year-old has achieved this feat in LaLiga, a new record.
Since his debut for the Blaugrana in 2005, Messi has scored 552 goals and assisted a further 245 strikes in 637 games.
