Lionel Messi - only player in La Liga to score 20+ Goals & 20+ assist in one season

Lionel Messi becomes the only player in La Liga history to score 20+ at assist 20+ in one season. In the top 5 leagues, he is the first player since Thierry Henry did the same in 2002.

He’s now equal with Xavi for most assists in a single La Liga season. He is missing 1 assist to equal the top 5 leagues record set by Thomas Muller.

And yet, He is having a bad season by his standards, His scoring ratio 27 goals in 39 Games (0.71) is the worse since 2007-08 when he was 20. Bad season for him, would be their best season ever for most others.


Messi currently stands on 22 goals at the top of the goalscoring charts in La Liga with 20 assists and except the legendary playmaker Xavi in 2008-09 no other player in Spanish history has achieved this feat. Despite these amazing numbers at this age, football pundits say Messi is having an average season.


Another history maker is Thierry Henry!

Thierry Henry in Premier League - 24 goals and 20 assists in 2002/03 for Arsenal.


Messi provided the killer pass that gave Vidal the chance to strike the 15th-minute goal that sank Valladolid, a 20th assist of the league season for Messi.
