Messi Sets Incredible Record

Lionel Messi Sets Incredible Record

By Kurt Buckerfield - May 21, 2018 02:25 PM @KurtLaduma

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, who won his fifth European Golden Boot this season, has set a fantastic goalscoring and assist record in LaLiga following yet another superb campaign.

Click through the gallery above to see LaLiga’s five top goalscorers this season!

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.

Do you think Messi can win yet another Ballon d'Or? Let us know in the comments section below.

@Soni_JX You sound like you watch soccer as an aftermath. We deal with individual talent here, not teamwork. Individual, who has stood head and shoulders above the rest? Do not count your chickens before they hatch. A world footballer of the year, by the way, is not chosen over one tournament, the UCL. What about teams that do not participate in it? Do not be prejudicial. Messi is the best there is, period.

@Ricworld Well said Richworld. Only people who are biased towards Europeans can argue against Messi being the front runner in this competition. Well done Maestro Messi.

Some few years back Penaldo won ballon D’or judged by the quantity of goals he scored.Now that Messi is dominating the goal chats not even to mention the rare talent,skill and quality he possesses. Penaldo’s fans somehow thinks winning UCL makes their hero the best player in the world.....with or without winning UCL Messi will always be a step ahead ,the rest will follow.

As suspected, what a predictable bunch.......I knew the SECOND FIDDLE I.D.I.O.T.S will blow this one out of proportion. siss-messi has the best number of goals this season in the "LaLiga" doffs. Not in Europe and off-cause not in the world. As for Europe's best.......watch the UEFA CL on saturday, you will see the real best.....it's between Salah and the MACHINE. As for the best in the world, the World Cup is about to begin.....don't jump the gun.

He is destined to win Laliga player of the season, not Ballon D'or he did nothing in Uefa champs league but performed in Spain not in Europe...
