Lionel Messi Scores Four Goals Against Osasuna, Sets Another Record
Lionel Messi made history again by becoming the first player to score in 11 consecutive Spanish La Liga matches when he delivered four goals in Barcelona's 5-1 domination over 10-man Osasuna Sunday.
Messi, the first soccer player to haul in four consecutive Ballon d'Or trophies, provided more evidence that he's the greatest soccer player of all-time following another record-smashing feat.
The 25-year-old Messi has 202 Spanish La Liga goals, 33 of which came this season as Barca (19-1-1, 58 points) strengthened its grip on the top spot in the standings.
Messi's four-goal effort also topped Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick in a 4-0 win against Getafe Saturday, validating his status as the purest scorer in the Spanish League.
