"History Maker": Messi Sets New Ligue 1 Record with Only Two Players Before Him

"Only Two Players Before": Lionel Messi Sets New Ligue 1 Record

Despite being 35 years old, Lionel Messi shows no signs of slowing down as he relentlessly keeps breaking records in his illustrious career.

Although Lionel Messi's contract with PSG may expire this summer, he is proving that age is just a number and continues to perform at a high level without showing any signs of slowing down.

On Friday night, Lionel Messi played a pivotal role in PSG's 2-1 victory over Angers SCO, assisting Mbappe's second goal and helping his team solidify their position at the top of the Ligue 1 table.

By providing that assist, Lionel Messi has increased his tally of assists to 15 for this season in addition to the 15 goals he has already scored in the league. His impressive performance in the World Cup has seamlessly translated into his club form, enabling him to maintain his excellent form throughout the season.

On Twitter, OptaJean pointed out that Lionel Messi has joined the ranks of only two other players since the 2006-07 season who have managed to achieve 15 or more goals and 15 or more assists in a single season.

Interestingly, the other two players who have achieved the feat of recording 15 or more goals and 15 or more assists in a single season since the 2006-07 season are none other than Eden Hazard, who achieved the feat during the 2011/12 season with 20 goals and 16 assists, and Kylian Mbappe, who set a new record last season with 28 goals and 17 assists.

Lionel Messi's first season in Ligue 1 may have been challenging, as he transitioned from his boyhood club Barcelona to PSG, but he still managed to make a significant contribution by scoring six goals and providing 15 assists.

It's evident that Lionel Messi has now fully adapted to Ligue 1, as he has surpassed his impressive performance from last season with six games yet to be played.

While Lionel Messi's future remains uncertain, there are rumors of his potential return to Barcelona heating up as the summer transfer window approaches. PSG's early exits in the Champions League in the last two seasons may influence the Argentine forward's decision to stay or leave the French capital.

With his recent World Cup victory just four months ago, Lionel Messi will undoubtedly be searching for the perfect way to conclude one of the most illustrious and remarkable careers in football history.
