Argentine international Lionel Messi set another La Liga record on Saturday in their win against Real Mallorca as the league resumed.
Barcelona who top the La Liga table with 61 points defeated Mallorca 4-0 in their first game since the league was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Scoring the fourth for the league leaders made the Argentine star the only player to score 20 or more goals in Spain’s top flight in 12 consecutive seasons.
He found the back of the net after Arturo Vidal, Martin Braithwaite and Jordi Alba registered their names on the scoring sheet.
Messi’s set-up for Martin Braithwaite to score his first Barcelona also saw his league assist tally this season rise to 14.
Lionel Messi holds the records for most goals in La Liga scoring 439 goals.
