🐐 Messi Monday: Barça's skipper eclipses Xavi to mark another milestone

Barcelona's 1-1 draw with Cádiz last night was far from ideal for Ronald Koeman and his charges, but Leo Messi's appearances did help him notch one more individual milestone.

Messi eclipsed former teammate and Barça legend Xavi to become the Barcelona player with the most LaLiga appearances since the competition's inception. That's just one of many Messi milestones, and it's getting added to a list we'll keep updating if and when the great man adds to it himself.
