Lionel Messi can't stop creating history with the latest coming after being included in Barcelona’s Wednesday evening’s Copa del Rey clash with Rayo Vallecano.
By being part of the team that made it to the quarterfinals of the Copa Del Rey, Messi became the player with the most games in the competition for the club.
In the game, Messi who was returning from a suspension was pivotal in his club’s comeback after Rayo, who is fourth in the Spanish second tier, took a shock lead when Fran Garcia tapped in a loose ball.
Messi restored parity six minutes later after slotting in Antoine Griezmann's pass before Frenkie de Jong's composed close-range finish proving to be the winner.
