Lionel Messi Reaches Incredible Statistical Feat in 13 League Seasons

Lionel Messi has scored two goals in his last two games for Paris Saint-Germain without Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr. out for the contests.

The two tallies by Messi this week, along with his already 10 assists, marked another historical feat for the Argentine. Messi has scored 10-plus goals & provided 10-plus assists in 13 league seasons.

Messi’s highest goal tallie during this 13-season run came during the 2011-12 campaign with FC Barcelona, where the veteran scored 50 goals. The most assists that Messi recorded was in 2019-20, which were 20.

Last season was a down season for the PSG star, which resulted in many believing that Messi’s best years were behind him. Nonetheless, the former Barcelona captain has shown he can still play at a high level.

It will be interesting to see whether Messi can cross either 20 goals or 20 assists in this second half of the season.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup winner will be counted on these next three weeks with Kylian Mbappe out and Neymar continuing his treatment and individual training sessions following pain in his groin.

Messi will need to guide PSG to a good result in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 against FC Bayern Munich as they hope to make a deep run in the competition.
