The Argentinian has scored an extraordinary average of 0.89 goals per match.
The game with Levante marked Leo Messi’s 300th Liga appearance and he was able to celebrate in style, scoring a hat trick in a 5-0 win. The three goals take his overall tally in the competition to 269, which equates to an average of 0.89 goals a game.
The Argentinian is already the highest goalscorer in the history of the Spanish championship after surpassing the previous record of 252 goals byTelmo Zarra against Sevilla last November. In fact, since then he scored in every game at the Camp Nou, an amazing return of 17 goals in ten games. He could extend that run by scoring in another home fixture, against Málaga next weekend.
Leo Messi has joined the select group of players that have worn the Barça shirt 300 times in official matches. Only his colleagues Xavi Hernández (491) and Andrés Iniesta (351) have reached that milestone before.
