Lionel Messi was busy breaking all sorts of records against Levante on Sunday night with three goals and two assists in a 5-0 win.

But the victory also means he’s now won more games in La Liga than any other Barcelona player in history.

The Barcelona captain has now tasted victory 323 times (in 432 games) in Spain’s top league, overtaking Xavi who previously held the record with 322 wins from 505 games (according to Sport).

Messi still has plenty of years left to keep extending this record too, which means it’s going to take something really special to get anywhere close to breaking it in the future.
