Barcelona star Lionel Messi is on the brink of another Spanish Liga goalscoring record.

The Argentinian has scored in his last 18 consecutive league matches and, should he find the net again on Saturday, would become the first man ever to score in successive games against every team in the Spanish top flight.

Those 18 games have brought 28 goals, helping the Catalans hold a 13-point lead over bitter rivals Real Madrid at the top of the standings.
