La Liga: Records Barcelona can script in 2020-21
Barcelona had a disappointing campaign in 2019-20 and failed to win a single trophy. The Spanish giants saw Real Madrid win La Liga as five points separated the two sides. Barca are set for an overhaul this summer under new boss Ronald Koeman, whereas, Lionel Messi is set to stay for another season. We present the league records Barca can script this season.
Messi in line to register these records
Messi has scored 444 goals for the club in La Liga. He needs six more to register the mark of 450. The legendary footballer has made 485 career appearances for Barca in La Liga. He is in line to become the first foreign player to register 500 league appearances.
Pique, Busquets and Vidal eye milestones
Barcelona defender Gerared Pique has made 346 league appearances for Barcelona. He is four shy of amassing 450 La Liga appearances. Meanwhile, veteran mid-fielder Sergio Busquets has made 379 appearances. He is 21 games away from registering a mark of 400. Meanwhile, Arturo Vidal (66 appearances) needs 34 more to register a milestone of 100 matches.
Messi aiming to register 200 La Liga assists
Messi has amassed 183 career La Liga assists so far. Last season, the player broke Xavi's record for most assists in a single La Liga season (21). Messi needs 17 more to amass a record of 200 assists in the Spanish league.
