Lionel Messi already tops the goalscoring and assists charts in La Liga but he found yet another list to take charge of against Sevilla.

The brilliant Argentine did not even start the match but came on and ensured Barcelona got a point they scarely deserved with a late, late equaliser.

Messi struck from outside the box with just a minute of normal time remaining to rescue a point and maintain Barcelona’s unbeaten record in La Liga.

And no-one else can match his record from goals outside the box this season.

The result means that Barcelona need to avoid defeat against Leganes next weekend to equal a La Liga record, which they can then break if they remain unbeaten against Valencia.

Of course in between those two games Barcelona have a couple of Champions League clashes with Roma to negotiate starting on Wednesday night at the Camp Nou.
