Messi breaks LaLiga record

Lionel Messi has broken the record for the most appearances in LaLiga by a non-Spanish player.

Messi made his 423rd LaLiga appearance when he was named in the Barcelona team for Sunday’s home game against Girona. The Argentina international overtakes a former Barcelona team-mate, Dani Alves, who previously occupied the record with 422 outings. Messi is in a rich vein of form since taking the Barca captaincy, scoring a hat-trick in a 4-0 Champions League defeat of PSV last time out.
