Lionel Messi was at it again against Leganes on Saturday as he scored his sixth free kick of the season to put Barcelona ahead.

The Argentine has been lethal from set pieces this season and proved it yet again as he flighted the ball over the wall and past goalkeeper Pichu Cuellar.

It’s the first time any player has managed to score six direct free kicks in a La Liga season since a certain Ronaldinho all the way back in 2006/07.

And that’s not all...

The bad news for Ronaldinho is that there’s still seven games of the season left. Plenty of time for Messi to break yet another record.
