LIONEL MESSI BREAKS MULLER’S RECORD OF 85 GOALS IN A CALENDAR YEAR AND SETS A NEW RECORD OF 86 GOALS




And the 25-year-old
surpassed Muller nine
minutes later with a
sweeping shot he was
afforded by Andres
Iniesta’s deft backheel.
But the player himself was
more focused on the fact
that the win maintains
Barca’s six-point lead over
Atletico Madrid at the top of
La Liga.
“I’ve said it a lot, it’s nice
to beat records but the win
for the team is what is
important and the points
difference at the top,” said
Messi.
“My goals are to win titles
with the team, the Spanish
league, Spanish Cup or
Champions League is more
important than any
personal records.”
Sunday’s milestone was the
latest in a jaw-dropping,
relentless career.
Last season, he became the
most successful goalscorer
in the history of the La Liga
by hitting 50 goals in the
league campaign and also
equalled the record for
goals scored in a
Champions League season
when he netted 14 times.
Messi took just 16 minutes
to equal German legend
Gerd Muller’s mark of 85
from 1972 when he slotted
a ball from Adriano into the
corner.
He is already the club’s
greatest scorer having
eclipsed the record held by
Cesar Rodriguez set in the
1940s and 1950s.
This latest feat means he
will be the overwhelming
favourite to once again
claim the FIFA Ballon d’Or
over team-mate Iniesta and
Real Madrid’s Cristiano
Ronaldo.
He would be the first player
to win the award four times.
