Messi, two new objectives: Hercules and Real
Barça striker Leo Messi has plenty of challenges ahead this season, two of which will be scoring against Hercules and Real Sociedad, the only teams in top flight he has never scored against.
Two of the newly promoted clubs, Hercules and Real Sociedad, will have to be especially careful
with Leo Messi, because they are the only sides the Argentine has yet to make one of his victims.
Three new teams last season
Valladolid and Vila-real were the three sides Messi had never sxcored against in La Liga last term,
but he bagged a hat trick against the islanders, scored past Valladolid both at the Nuevo Zorrilla
and Camp Nou and collected a brace against Vila-at El Madrigal.
Messi on goalscoring form
season Leo Messi set a new personal best with 47 goals, 34 in La Liga. He looks to be going the
same way this season, with four in his account already in just two official appearances: the
Spanish Super Cup and the league opener against Racing. Messi is also just one goal away from
scoring his one hundredth goal with his left foot.
