Lionel Messi has just scored the 438th goal in La Liga, helping him to break the record set by Cristiano Ronaldo earlier, accompanied by Barce’s congratulations full of subtext.
New records set
Last weekend, Lionel Messi scored on the 11m mark to help Barca beat Real Sociedad 1-0. This goal was his 438th goal after 474 appearances in La Liga. With this goal, Messi became the greatest goalscorer in Europe’s top 5 leagues.
Messi’s achievement is more than a goal compared to the old record that Cristiano Ronaldo set. Currently, CR7 has 437 games after 540 matches. Ronaldo’s achievements are calculated when he played for MU, Real Madrid, Juventus and did not count when he was playing for Sporting Lisbon.
Shortly after Messi set a new record, Barca’s personal page quickly sent greetings to their star. Notably, this greeting as Ronaldo kicking intent.
On their personal page, Barca wrote: “The natural order has been restored.”
Ronaldo and Messi have long vied for every individual title as well as record goals. At the moment, it is difficult for Ronaldo to improve his scoring record because the Serie A tournament is constantly interrupted by the Covid-19 virus.
Ronaldo is having a second season with Juventus after moving here from Real Madrid for 100 million euros in 2018. He has 21 goals in Serie A this season but the latest goal has been since January 25 in The match against Napoli.
Barcelona’s Lionel Messi became the first player to reach 1,000 goal contributions
The Argentine suffered a drought after failing to find the net in four matches, but he ended it in style, yielding to a defender before subtly breaking the ball over the goalkeeper after 13 minutes.
He then scored twice in the first half to win a hat-trick in La Liga to 36, two against rival Cristiano Ronaldo. He added a fourth time in the final minutes of the match to win a sweet victory for the Blaugrana.
Even when Messi struggled in front of goal, his performance was still unbelievable, registering eight assists in La Liga’s last 9 goals before today.
Messi’s achievement list is ridiculous, but becoming the first player to have 1,000 goal contributions, which is to score or directly assist the goal, in the history of the game is simply phenomenal.
When you break it, Barcelona’s No.10 has registered 696 goals and assisted 306 times for the Catalan giants and the Argentina national team throughout his 16-year career.
The scary thing for the other legendary characters of the game is that the little genius still has at least three or four years before he hangs on his shoes and maybe even longer.
Messi has won the Golden Ball six times, the most recently in 2019 and has led Barcelona to the top of La Liga.
If there’s a small question mark around Argentina’s illustrious career, it’s that he didn’t win the World Cup or the Copa America with his country, but this latest achievement shows he’s coming from other crystals.
