Lionel Messi scored 2 goals in quick succession against yet another thrilling game against Real Betis.
The Argentine striker was really well setup by his fellow mates as he scored his 85th and 86th goal in a calendar year. People were hoping for a hat trick to cap off this brilliant performance from the little wizard, although that didn’t happen but having already broken dozens of record in at the early age of 25.
After the game Messi said that it was great that he broke the record but personal milestones are secondary following the clubs’ success. Leo was also praised by record holder Gerd Muller as he stated that Messi is an absolutely outstanding player and deserves the honor. He also said that the only thing that was lacking was that he didn’t play for Bayern Munich.
After crossing this milestone many believe that Messi will now surely receive the Ballon d’Or. Who knows though, anything can change.
