Lionel Messi set yet another new record on Sunday night when he took to the field for Barcelona against Girona at the Camp Nou.
The outing was his 423th in La Liga and no other non-Spanish player has made more, not even Dani Alves who previously held the record.

It remains to be seen just how many La Liga appearances Messi will rack up before he finally decides to hang up his boots. What is certain is that whatever number he does end up on will take some beating.
