No Player in Europe’s Top Five Leagues Comes Close to Messi in This Incredible Goals Stat

Even at this late stage in his storied career, Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi continues to prove that he can still be a top-class goal-scorer.

Messi shined for PSG in its 4-3 Ligue 1 home win over Troyes, as he recorded a goal and an assist in the contest. Messi’s lone goal of the match was one of his best scores this season; his thunderous outside-the-box goal in the second half leveled the match at 2-2.

Overall, Messi has tallied an astounding 38 outside-the-box goals in league play since the 2017-2018 season, which ranks first among all players in Europe’s top five leagues over this time period. In second place on this leaderboard is Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne with 19 such goals.

In the big picture, Messi has logged at least one goal contribution in his last three appearances for PSG in all competitions. He sure will look to extend this streak in PSG’s UEFA Champions League away group stage fixture against Juventus on Wednesday.
