Lionel Messi is Expected to break more Records Barcelona.

Lionel Messi seems to be making history with every passing game at the moment, and he’s going to continue tonight at El Alcoraz.

Messi is set to make his 750th appearance for Barcelona against Huesca, his 500th in La Liga as per Diario Sport.

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).

He made his debut on October 16, 2004, coming on for Portuguese midfielder Deco in a city derby with Espanyol at just 17 years old.
