Messi will surpass Xavi’s records with Barca in 2021

Messi is expected to surpass the two records Xavi holds at Barca in 2021, including playing the most games in La Liga and the most matches with the club.

Xavi Hernandez still holds two records in Barcelona, ​​but the chances of being surpassed by Lionel Messi are increasing and will most likely occur in 2021.

The first record that Messi is most easily broken is the Barca player with the most games in La Liga. He just had his 475 match against Mallorca, only 30 goals away from the legendary midfielder (505). Andoni Zubizarreta has led with 622 matches but only 301 matches with Barca.

If adding 10 games from now to the end of the season, Messi will reach 485 games, but the record above 20 appearances. That is the number that he will easily surpass next season.

Another record is in the hands of the Argentine superstar but it takes longer than the player with the most matches in Barcelona history.

Currently, Messi has played 718 matches so he can finish the season with at least 729 matches (10 in La Liga and 1 in the C1 Cup). He needs 39 more games to surpass Xavi, the leader in history with 767 matches.

If nothing changes, it seems that these two records will be surpassed by Messi in 2021. Before that, the two milestones that he was willing to set as a monopoly on the record for La Liga top scorer (Pichichi) while having 6 like Telmo Zarra and the most goalscorer for a club

Messi now has 628 goals, meaning only need 15 more to overcome Pele (643) with Santos in Brazil. After nearly 5 decades, La Pulga became the player who came very close to changing the owner of this admirable achievement.

How did Messi debut Barca B 16 years ago?

16 years ago, Lionel Messi launched the Barca B team with an impressive performance to help the home team win the Catalan derby.

Messi officially launched the Barca B team in the Catalan derby against Espanyol on March 6, 2004. At that time, the 16-year-old Argentine boy surprised everyone with his quick steps, handling technical balls and especially tactical thinking superior to his peers.

In this match, Messi constantly created situations of dribbling and speed techniques, stirring the opponent’s defense to bring the opportunity to score for the home team. In particular, the Argentine player directly participated in both goals of Barca B, contributing 1 goal and 1 assist.

This impressive performance and other imprints in Barca B helped Messi quickly make his debut for the Barca team just a few months later, particularly in October 2005. Coincidentally, the opponent was still Espanyol.

This achievement helped Messi become the youngest player to debut on the first team of Barca at the age of 17, 3 months and 22 days. In May 2005, the Argentine striker scored his first goal for a first-team Barca, opening the journey to becoming a legendary striker with a total of 627 goals after 718 official matches.

Messi started his football career at the age of 7 when he joined the youth team of Newell’s Old Boys. After 6 years at home, the Argentine boy went to Barcelona to develop his career. Since then, Messi has in turn surpassed Barca’s youth levels: Infantil A, Cadete B, Cadete A, Juvenil A, Barca C and Barca B.

However, when he was still a member of the Juvenil A team in November 2003, Messi was introduced to the first team Barca in a friendly against coach Jose Mourinho’s Porto. He has an impressive performance that will cause many experts to become the world’s top star in the future. Now, the prediction has come true.
