The Lionel Messi Record That May Never Be Broken

Lionel Messi is widely considered the best player in the world. The Argentine has been at the peak of his powers for over a decade, winning six Ballon d’Or titles over that period.

The little magician smashed the record set by Gerd Muller that stood for 76 years in the 2012-13 season by scoring 33 times throughout 21 consecutive LaLiga matches.

Gerd Muller set the record in the 1969-70 season when he went on a run of 16 consecutive Bundesliga games in which he managed to score.

Being on the scoresheet consecutively in a league is not an easy task and to achieve the feat, you have to make sublime simple.

Lewandowski's 15-game scoring streak ends as he failed to score against Greuther Furth but Bayern Munich registered a comprehensive 3-1 win.

There's no disrespect to Lewandowski, but Messi's record of 21-game scoring streak is simply incredible and may never be broken.

Do you think the record can be broken? Please share your opinion.
