Lionel Messi scores four goals against Osasuna, sets another record
Barcelona, Spain (4E Sports) – Lionel Messi made history again by becoming the first player to score in 11 consecutive Spanish La Liga matches when he delivered four goals in Barcelona’s 5-1 domination over 10-man Osasuna Sunday.
Messi, the first soccer player to haul in four consecutive Ballon d’Or trophies, provided more evidence that he’s the greatest soccer player of all-time following another record-smashing feat.
The 25-year-old Messi has 202 Spanish La Liga goals, 33 of which came this season as Barca (19-1-1, 58 points) strengthened its grip on the top spot in the standings.
Messi’s four-goal effort also topped Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick in a 4-0 win against Getafe Saturday, validating his status as the purest scorer in the Spanish League.
