Messi Joins Dani Alves in the Record Books After PSG Clinches Ligue 1 Title

Lionel Messi made history multiple times in Paris Saint-Germain’s 1-1 draw against RC Strasbourg Alsace on Saturday at the Stade de la Meinau Strasbourg.

Messi opened the scoring for the capital club, which allowed the Argentine to become the all-time leading scorer in Europe’s top five leagues after registering career goal No. 496.

PSG securing the draw allowed the French giants to clinch their 11th Ligue 1 title, the most in league history. Furthermore, Messi reached former PSG defender Dani Alves’ mark as the player with the most titles in football history with 43.

It’s been a 2022-23 season filled with the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner as he also became Argentina’s top goal scorer in the World Cup competition as Messi overtook Gabriel Batistuta’s previous record of 10 goals, which he scored at the 1994, 1998 and 2002 World Cups.

Messi has one more Ligue 1 contest this season and he’s two assists shy of tying the league’s single-season assist record, which former PSG star Angel Di Maria holds with 18 assists.
