 Lionel Messi equals La Liga scoring record

Madrid: Lionel Messi matched a 59-year-old record with his 251st La Liga goal to equal Telmo Zarra`s mark as the leading goalscorer in the history of the Spanish top flight.

The Argentine curled home a trademark free-kick to reach the mark in just his 289th La Liga appearance and give Barcelona the lead against Sevilla.

Legendary Basque striker Zarra scored his 251 goals for Athletic Bilbao during a 15-year career from 1940 to 1955.
