Lionel Messi has become the first player in Spanish league history to score against every other La Liga team consecutively.
Barcelona forward Lionel Messi continues to break records as he netted against Celta Vigo in a 2-2 draw on Saturday.
Messi has now scored in 19 consecutive matches against every other team in the top Spanish division.
This is the first time the feat has ever been achieved in football history in Spain, as the Argentinian took his goal tally for the season to 56.
The 25-year-old has scored 29 goals on his current streak and is terrorising defences yet again in 2013.
Messi had already broken the record for goals in consecutive La Liga matches, which was set at 10, but topped the achievement by doing it against all of Barcelona’s league opponents.
The Catalan star is the top scoring player in European football in 2013 as well – his 17 league goals puts him ahead of Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo (14) and Robert Lewandowski (10) of Borussia Dortmund.
Messi can now add this record to his list, having already scored more goals in a calendar year than anyone else in history, scoring the most goals in a Champion’s League match and winning the Ballon D’Or a record four times.
The record breaker has helped his Barca side to the top of the La Liga table this season, with them currently sitting 13 points ahead of holders and bitter rivals Real Madrid.
The Argentina international could also break his own record of most goals in a year as he has already scored more in 2013 than he had at this point last year.
