Lionel Messi seems to be making history with every passing game at the moment, and he’s going to continue tonight at El Alcoraz.
Once he hits that, next in his sights will be Xavi‘s record of 767 games, 505 of which were in La Liga, between 1998 and 2015.
Messi, who Ronald Koeman has called happy and prepared, needs to play just 18 more games to become the player to have played the most games in the club’s history.
He’s been their leading goalscorer, with 644, for a long time, a record that’s unlikely to ever be surpassed.
The Argentina already holds the record for the most La Liga wins (368) and goals (451) for a Barcelona player, as well as the most titles (10).
