Barcelona travel to Girona on Saturday and if Messi finds the back of the net, he will overtake Raul to become the La Liga player who has scored against the most teams in Spain.
Lionel Messi is so good that he breaks records without even trying to. After his explosive start to the season, the Argentinian is looking to reach yet another milestone in the clash with Girona in the first Catalan derby between the two clubs in the Spanish top tier.
The Barcelona star has currently scored against different 35 teams in La Liga during his illustrious career, a number matched only by former Real Madrid striker Raul Gonzales Blanco, more commonly known as just Raul.
Currently the joint record holder with the Spanish striker, if Messi scores against Girona he will become the undisputed leader in terms of La Liga teams scored against, with 36.
If, however, he doesn’t manage to succeed on Saturday, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner will only have to wait until the return fixture at the Camp Nou in February to score the goal which will put his name, once again, in the history books of Spanish football.
