Lionel Messi’s Amazing 72 Goal Record
Lionel Messi have lost his sharpness in Barcelona’s 3 earlier matches. But before the league’s ended, Messi got back on his feet, and scored an amazing 9 goals in the last 3 matches, adding to his goal collection to 72 goals in all competition.
It was happened so fast. Before, Messi only collected 63 goals after his failure in Chelsea’s home and away match, plus the El Clasico. His goal collection is predicted to be below 70 goals until the end of the season.
But suddenly, when the league competition has come to an end, with only 4 matches left to play, Messi returned to his old self. He scored 2 goals against Rayo Vallecano, scored a hattrick in Barcelona’s 4-1 victory over Malaga, and later his quattrick in Barcelona’s derby against Espanyol.
With the goals, Messi has overcome Gerd Mueller’s 67 goal record as the European striker with the most goal in a season. And it is still counting, since Messi has 1 more league match to play, plus one Copa del Rey final.
But in domestic league, Messi’s goal achievement is nothing compare to the number one list, Archie Stark, who collected 67 goals, Pele in Brazil league with 66 goals or Ferenc Deak in Hungarian League, also with 66 goals . But who knows, maybe next season Messi will score more goal, as he has been improving each year, and overcome their record.
