Lionel Messi becomes first player to score 400 La Liga goals

Lionel Messi becomes first player to score 400 La Liga goals

Just as in Barcelona's last treble winning season, Pique started this campaign quite poorly but has improved steadily over the past 2-3 months. "It's easy to say but you have to score them one after the other, it's a long-term job. He is from another galaxy".

He's only been the club for one year and the numbers do not lie: 15 goals and 10 assists in 45 appearances across all competitions.

Messi bagged Barcelona's second goal shortly after half-time to hit the 400 mark in only his 435th league match, giving him a remarkable scoring ratio of 0.91.

Barca now sit five points ahead of Atletico Madrid in the La Liga table, with Sevilla dropping crucial points away at Athletic Bilbao yesterday. Madrid moved into fourth after beating Real Betis 2-1, courtesy of a late Dani Ceballos free kick. Five seasons as top scorer in Spain as well as five European Golden Shoes during a time when him and Cristiano Ronaldo were taking goalscoring to the next level backs this up. According to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, Coutinho, who has been left out of the starting XI in each of Barcelona's last four league matches, is believed to be growing increasingly unhappy with his marginalised role having lost his spot to Ousmane Dembele.

The third goal was simple, however, as Sergi Roberto took a quick throw and freed the scuttling Suarez.




While talking about his team selection, Ernesto Valverde said "I picked the best team I thought we could pick", and then further added "It served us to evaluate players in some tough moments, like in a LaLiga game".

Second-placed Atletico kept up the pressure on Barca with a controversial 1-0 home win over Levante.

Messi was quiet for much of the game with his goal coming from his first shot. He has 17 goals already this season.

Even though the Basque outfit beat Real Madrid recently, they've never defeated Barcelona, losing all eight meetings by at least two goals.
