Messi, two goals or more in eleven matches

Edgar Fornós

Of the many remarkable statistics associated to Barça’s amazing season, one of the most outstanding is the fact that Leo Messi scored two or more goals in no fewer than 11 league games.

In Leo Messi’s dream season he has equalled the record for the most goals for the club in one Liga campaign, the 34 set by Ronaldo Luiz Nazário. These goals have helped him win the European Golden Boot award, as well as the Spanish Pichichi.

Three league hat-tricks

Nine braces

All kinds of goals

With his good left foot, or his weaker right foot, with his head, after individual runs, from free kicks, from penalties, and even with his chest. Leo Messi has scored just about every way possible, showing that not only is he an innate goalscorer, but that he is also hugely inventive when it comes to using his resources.
