6 Ligue 1 Records Messi Could Break Despite Having Zero Goals In The League

Lionel Messi scored his first goal for Paris Saint-Germain during their second UEFA champions league match against Manchester City.

However, the six times ballon d'or winner who signed for the French side this summer hasn’t scored or provided an assist yet in Ligue 1.

With an injury that ruled him out of the French giants' last match against Metz, Messi will be hoping to get his first goal in ligue 1. 

It must be highlighted again that the Argentine's first two ligue 1 matches represent a small sample size, so you clearly have to be a little cautious when it comes to drawing conclusions.

Although Lionel Messi has not scored yet in Ligue , here are six Ligue 1 Records he Could break: 

1. Most Games Scored In A Row: Lionel Messi could break Vahid Halilhodzic and Zlatan Ibrahimovic record of most games scored in a row. Zlatan Ibrahimovic who played for PSG scored in 9 consecutive matches during the 2015-2016 season while Vahid Halilhodzic who played for Nantes also scored in 9 matches consecutively during the 1984–1985 campaign.  

2. Top goal scorer in a Season: Josip Skoblar holds the record for most goals in a single season at 44, however, Lionel Messi could break the record this season. Messi holds the record for most goals scored in a single Laliga season with 50 in the 2011–12 campaign during his time at Barcelona.

3. Fastest hat-trick: The holder of the fastest hat-trick in Ligue is Matt Moussilou. It took him 5 minutes to achieve it in 2005 when Lille played against Istres. 

4 . Top Goal Scorer in a Season for PSG: the player with the most goals in a season for PSG is Zlatan Ibrahimović in 2015–16. He scored 50 goals that season.

5. Highest Ligue 1 Assists in a Season: Ángel Di María holds this record with 18 assists in 2015/16.

6 . Highest Assists in a Season for PSG: Ángel Di María holds this record with 18 assists during the 2015/16 season.
