Leo Messi's goal against VfB Stuttgart has created new scoring records as he has scored seven goals in the last five consecutive matches for FC Barcelona.

The Argentinian has found the net against Lyon, Sevilla, Real Zaragoza, Levante and Stuttgart as he has made a remarkable start to the new season and made him joint top scorer in the Spanish league with Sergio Agüero.

Two week blitz

His previous best record was five goals in three consecutive games which came when he scored a hat-trick against Real Madrid, another goal against Recreativo and then a single against Deportivo last season.

'Pichichi' in the League and in Europe

In Europe, Messi is also joint top scorer with two goals in the first two matches. Zlatan Ibrahimovic of Inter, Robin Van Persie of Arsenal, Deivid of Fenerbahce and Vagner Love of CSKA Moscow also all have two goals each.
