Lionel Messi reached three incredible statistical feats in Paris Saint-Germain’s 1-1 draw against RC Strasbourg Alsace on Saturday at the Stade de la Meinau Strasbourg.
SofaScore noted that Messi, with his first successful dribble against Strasbourg, Messi has become only the second player in Europe’s top five leagues, after Real Madrid’s Vinícius Júnior, to complete 100 dribbles this 2022-23 season.

With his first successful dribble v Strasbourg, Lionel Messi has become only the second player in the top 5 leagues (after Vinícius Júnior) to complete 100 dribbles this season! 💨

Furthermore, this is the seventh time he has achieved the feat in the last eight seasons. However, this might be the minor of the three as the Argentine also reached another two milestones.
Messi also tied former PSG defender Dani Alves’ mark as the player with the most titles in football history with 43.
In the final Ligue 1 contest against Clermont Foot, Messi has another statistical feat he can reach. The veteran is two assists shy of tying the league’s single-season assists record, as Messi has 16 and Angel Di Maria’s record is 18.
