12th July . Argentine Star Striker Lionel Messi became the first player in LaLiga history to score 20 Goals and assist 20 goals or more within the same season. This record was claimed by Messi after he assisted Arturo Vidal, who scored the one and only goal to grab the victory over Real Valladolid on Saturday.
Messi already had a career-high 19 LaLiga assists to his name this season. But it remained as a history after he managed to provide another assist last night.
He is the first player to reach 20 assists in La Liga since former team-mate Xavi in 2008-09. But no player has ever set the record of 20 Goals & 20 assists within a single season.
Barcelona, however, is still toiling to win the title after being down to 2nd spot after the resume of League after Lockdown few weeks ago. League Leader Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last 8 matches and are closer to lifting the title after 3 years.
