👑 Messi motivation: The great man's goal tallies for the last 13 seasons in a Barça shirt

It's been a frantic week in football so we're deliberately taking the time now to slow things down by throwing it all the way back to the 2008-09 campaign.

Leo Messi's first season in which he hit 30+ goals for Barcelona, amazingly, was thirteen years ago and he's hit that mark at the very least every single season since.

Then there's the 2011-12 season to consider; Messi struck an astonishing 73 goals for Barcelona including 50 in LaLiga (37 appearances) alone. 

Back to the future and Barça plays the first of their two games in hand on current LaLiga leaders Real Madrid tonight, knowing that if they win both they'll leapfrog their archrivals and go to the summit of the table.

We've got a nailbiting race to the finish in Spain this season, that's for sure.
