LaLiga: Barcelona Wins Espanyol 4-0, As Messi Sets New Record

Lionel Messi, Barcelona captain

Lionel Messi, Barcelona captain, on Saturday set a new record in his side’s 4-0 victory over Espanyol in the La Liga.

Goals from Lionel Messi (2), Ousmane Dembele (1) and Luiz Suarez ensured victory for Ernesto Valverde’s men.

According to OptaJose, Messi’s brace against Espanyol took him up to 10 for the season in the league, making him the first-ever player to enter double figures in 13 consecutive La Liga seasons, Daily Post reports.

The Argentine International is the only player in the history of the Spanish La Liga to have scored 10+ goals in 13 consecutive seasons.

Speaking after the match, Messi told Vamos: “I try to follow a routine a bit, trying to do it the same way so that it goes well again.

“Other times I have a lot of free-kicks and I do not put them in. I was lucky enough to get two in a row.”

Messi will now hope to lead Barca to victory when they tackle Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night in the Champions League fixture at Camp Nou.
