Today in history: Messi scores in record 19th consecutive La-liga game

On 30 March, Messi scored for the 19th consecutive La Liga game, netting Barcelona’s second goal at Celta de Vigo and thus becoming the first footballer in La Liga’s history to score in consecutive matches against every team

The four-time world player of the year registered for the 19th game in a row as Barca drew 2-2 at Celta Vigo

In Vigo, Messi captained the side and went on to break his latest record.

The previous mark for goals in consecutive La Liga games was 10.

Barca fell behind to Natxo Insa’s close-range finish but Messi released Cristian Tello to curl home a fine equaliser.

Tello then cut the ball back for Messi to drill low into the net, only for relegation-threatened Celta to give their chances of survival a huge boost as Borja Oubina headed home at the back post on 88 minutes.

Messi once went on with his good La Liga form to bag 46 goals, also producing 12 assists in the competition, while he scored 60 goals and provided 16 assists in all competitions that season.
