MUST-WATCH: Lionel Messi ties La Liga goals record with fitting free kick

0 Comments

Lionel Messi is making history with the on-field style you’ve come to expect from the all-time legend.

The Barcelona striker entered Saturday’s match against Sevilla one goal shy of the La Liga record for all-time goals. He equaled Telmo Zarra’s record of 251 goals in Spain’s top-flight, set for Athletic Bilbao between 1940-55, with a stunning, curling free kick that sent Sevilla keeper Beto stumbling helplessly into the side netting.

Messi needed four less years but 12 more games to break the almost 60-year-old record.

And there’s still time Saturday to make the record his own, as the game is just at halftime.
