Lionel Messi assists for Barcelona in win, holds two new records


Lionel Messi assisted once more for Barcelona, this time in their 1-0 win vs. Real Valladolid and he now holds another record.

The Argentina and Barcelona captain has now reached 20 assists this season, drawing him level with Xavi with the most assists in a single La Liga season after assisting Arthuro Vidal in the win. Xavi has held the record since the 2008-2009 season.

Messi is also on 22 goals this season and also draws level with Thierry Henry as the only players to have 20 or more goals and assists in a single season since the turn of the century.


  1. I think Barcelona are a great team this season and will get even better in the future. Because as I read through the article slotxo, there is an analysis that football teams are more likely to grow than they currently are, but one of them is always there. Therefore, I think this news is definitely not the first good news for this team. Because other good news will follow

  2. Looking at the CL draw It will take a miracle for Barca to make it to the final. At the current form can’t even surely say they will take out Napoli either.

    In case if they does Bayern, Juventus, Mancity or RM will be hell of a task. There is no Cam Nau to save them either. It’s a knockout which don’t favor Barca.

    It’s a hell of ridiculous draw by the way.

  3. Barca board management and coach should be thankful to Messi; he save their face and job.

    Numero Uno goalscorer, assist provider and Number 1 G.O.A.T. With 33 yrs old and still setting the high standard. Unfortunately Barca have lose their creativeness and lack of mid, bad defense. Only Messi and GK Ter Stegen are par excellence and save the sinking ship….
