Lionel Messi never gets tired of his break records. With his brace against Huesca on Sunday at Camp Nou, the only team in the division he had not scored against, the Argentine can now boast a full set of victims in LaLiga. Real Madrid’s Raúl González managed to score against 35 different clubs in the Spanish top flight but Messi went past that landmark figure last season and extended his record with his goals against the newly promoted side.
Albacete the first victim
We have to go back to the 1 May, 2005 for his first victim, Albacete, a goal that came thanks to an assist from none other Ronaldinho. Against 11 teams he scored on his first appearance against them (Rayo, Betis, Athletic, Eibar, Racing, Almería, Mallorca, Sporting, Tenerife, Alabès, Leganés, Córdoba, Recreativo, Nàstic and Huesca) and against another on his second appearance (Sevilla, Atético, Deportivo, Real Sociedad, Granada, Celta, Elche, Hércules, Numancia, Albacete and Girona).
