Setting and breaking records just happen to be Lionel Messi’s hobby beside scoring goals and mesmerizing his football opponents. Messi made history again by becoming the first player to score in 11 consecutive Spanish La Liga matches when he netted four goals in Barcelona’s 5-1 demolition of 10-man Osasuna Sunday.
Messi, who is the first soccer player to haul in four consecutive Ballon d’Or trophies, proved once more why he’s undoubtedly the greatest soccer player of all-time following another record-smashing feat.
The 25-year-old Argentine also by his feat last night became the youngest player in La Liga history to surpass the 200 (Messi has scored 202 La Liga goals) goals thresh-hold.
The Argentine now has 33 La Liga goals, twelve more than his arch rival, Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid who also scored his 19th La Liga hat-trick following their 4-0 thumping of Getafe on Saturday. But his achievement appeared to be dwarfed by Messi’s superlative performance.
