Messi's LaLiga 400: The stats behind the Barca talisman's latest record

Share

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi further etched his name into Spanish football history by becoming the first player to score 400 goals in La Liga when he netted against Eibar on Sunday.

"His numbers are stratospheric, incredible".

The midfielder is largely responsible for making his side's task in the second leg a whole lot easier having won a late penalty which Coutinho converted late in the game. Real remain 10 points adrift of Barcelona.

29 - Luis Suarez has set up more of Messi's 400 than anyone else, claiming 29 assists for the Barca talisman.

Ballon d'Or victor Luka Modric opened the scoring for Madrid with a left-footed effort after 13 minutes.

Philippe Coutinho remains a "great player" who must simply work hard to win back his Barcelona starting spot, according to Ernesto Valverde.

However, Messi made it 2-0 for the hosts eight minutes after the break with a low shot past goalkeeper Asier Riesgo after slaloming his way through inside the box.

Manchester United have been galvanised by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - winning their last five games since the Norwegian's arrival - but if the Red Devils are to claw themselves into the Premier League top-four then they need a sensational signing to help finish the second half of the season in style.

Messi's milestone strike came moments after he appeared to be struggling.

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