Daily Poll: When Will Lionel Messi's Streak End?

David Ramos

With his deft little lob over Aranzubia last weekend, Lionel Messi scored in his seventeenth successive La Liga match. So, when do you think the streak will end?

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you'll probably know that Lionel Messi has not only developed into one of the greatest players of all-time, but also one of the greatest goalscorers the world has ever seen. On course to break his own record for goals scored in a single La Liga season, Messi has amassed a staggering 40 goals in just 2309 minutes of La Liga football thus far this season - which translates to a goal every 57 minutes. Not only that, but he's managed to score 40 goals in just 141 shots, an average of a goal every 3.5 shots. To put that into context, Falcao's average is four shots per goal, while Cristiano Ronaldo's average is an utterly ridiculous seven shots per goal.

In spite of that, Messi has also created nine goals for his teammates (in La Liga) - the same number as Mesut Ozil - while he also boasts a higher pass completion rate than Isco, Xabi Alonso, Ozil and many others. Quite simply, Messi is one of a kind, and as if we needed any more proof, the Argentine has scored in a record-breaking seventeen successive La Liga matches. The run started back in November with a brace against Real Mallorca and 16 games, not to mention 25 goals later, the streak is still alive. So, when do you think the streak will end? I've listed all of Barcelona's remaining La Liga fixtures below, and voting is easy - just use the slider on the Wayin-powered poll below, but be sure to comment with your prediction as well.
