Another game & another record for the GOAT

Lionel Messi was it again at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday, scoring Barcelona’s second as Barca moved 14 points clear of Real Madrid after a 3-0 win.

Luis Suarez opened the scoring but Messi made the game safe from the penalty spot after Dani Carvajal’s handball which also saw the defender sent off.

Unsurprisingly it was yet another record for Messi who has become the first player to ever score 25 goals in El Clasico.

He’s also scored more goals against los Blancos than any other player in La Liga. Ever.

His goal also means that he’s now scored over 15 goals for the last 10 seasons in a row.

It’s also his 200th La Liga assist...

And if that were not enough, he’s also surpassed Gerd Muller’s record with his 526th Barcelona goal.

Not a bad afternoon’s work!
