Lionel Messi is a six-time FIFA World Best Player award winner

Lionel Messi set another La Liga record on Saturday [June 13, 2020] as Barcelona made a winning return to the pitch. 

Barcelona won 4-0 at Real Mallorca in their first match since the league was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Arturo Vidal opened the scoring after just two minutes before Messi set up Martin Braithwaite for his first Barca goal and then Jordi Alba to make the points safe.

Messi then added a fourth in second-half injury time to reach 20 La Liga goals for 2019-20.

The Argentina star is the only player to score 20 or more goals in Spain’s top flight in 12 consecutive seasons.

Messi’s strong performance against Mallorca also saw his league assist tally this season rise to 14, making him both the top scorer and top assist provider in La Liga this season.
