La Liga

Laliga record; Lionel Messi is now the highest assist provider in a single season.

Lionel Messi keeps on surprising us on a weekly basis, it seems breaking records is his hobby as he is now the first and only footballer in Spanish Laliga to provide 21 assists in a single season.

Xavi Hernandez has held this record for the past eleven years, no one has come close to breaking it except Lionel Messi who has 18 assists in two different seasons, he has finally broken the record this season with his 21 assists in Laliga.

Lionel Messi also equalled Thomas Mullar's European record of 21 assists in a single season.

Thiery Henry scored 24 goals and assisted 20 in 2003/2004 premier League season, a record which he set that year and has stood for the last 17 years, till Lionel Messi broke it this season with his 25 goals and 21 assists.

Messi might have lost the Laliga title to Real Madrid but no player has scored or assisted more this season.

Let's try and celebrate him rather than criticist him for losing a League which is not even his fault.
