Lionel Messi is no stranger to picking up records and he was at it yet again as he was denied by the woodwork against Eibar.
The Argentine looked set to make it 2-0 in the first half when he fired at goal from a tight angle but once again saw the ball hit the frame of the goal.
Opta show just how many times he has been denied by the woodwork already this season.
14 - Lionel Messi has equalled the record of the most woodwork hit in a single @LaLiga season since at least 2003/04, which was set by Messi himself on 2011/12 (14). Wood pic.twitter.com/uiqw0PX6sg— OptaJose (@OptaJose) February 17, 2018
Despite that, Messi did finish the game with an assist which ensures he remains top of the charts in La Liga for both goals and assists.

He is, though, overdue a goal as Messi has not scored in any of his last five games, his last goal coming in the 2-1 win over Alaves.
