Pelé does not win for scares: Messi is already 17 goals from his record

first_imgIn fact, this Saturday he signed his sixth goal poker with FC Barcelona and second against Eibar, to which we must add the 41 ‘hat trick’ he has done in his career and the poker that he signed against Bayer Leverkusen (7-1) in the Champions League (2011/12). The teams to which Leo has scored four goals are: Arsenal (4-0) in the Champions League (2009/10), Valencia in the League (5-1) in the League (2011/12), Espanyol (4-0) in the League (2011/12), Osasuna (5-1) in the League (2012/13), Eibar (6-1) in the League (2017/18) and again Eibar (5-0) in the League (2019/20).Further, leads the scorers table in LaLiga, with 18 goals, five more than Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema, which adds 13, after staying another day without seeing door. That means that the Argentine goes straight to his seventh ‘pichichi’, thus surpassing the legendary Athletic striker, Telmo Zarra, who reached six.Right now, Messi has at least fifteen games left to finish the season and twenty at best, if the team reaches the Champions League final in Istanbul. That means you will have to clench your teeth if you want to reach this record this season. What seems clear is that, sooner or later, in 2020, Messi will take over from the throne of Pelé. Edson Arantes do Nascimiento, better known as Pelé, will surely know since Leo Messi signed this day a goal poker against Eibar and that ‘therefore’ is only 17 of the record that the legendary Brazilian player still holds, with the 643 goals he scored in official matches with Santos.A record that has been in force for more than five decades, but that is about to fall like a ripe fruit because of an Argentine born in Rosario 32 years ago. And it is that Messi already adds a total of 626 goals in 715 matchs, with an average of 0.87 goals per game, distributed as follows: 436 in the League, 114 in the Champions League, 53 in the Copa del Rey, 14 in the Spanish Super Cup, 5 in the Club World Cup and 3 in the Spanish Super Cup.last_img read more
