Magical Messi Sets New LaLiga Record

Although he is yet to find his best form this season after injuries disrupted the start of his campaign, FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi scored in the Catalan club's 4-0 win over Sevilla on Sunday, and set a remarkable new record in doing so.

After strikes from Luis Suarez, Arturo Vidal and Ousmane Dembele, Messi struck from a direct free-kick in the 78th minute to make the score 4-0 at the Camp Nou.

It was the Argentine's first goal of the 2019/20 season, but that strike means the 32-year-old has now found the back of the net in 16 consecutive LaLiga campaigns, a feat no other player in this century has achieved.
