Messi Equals Xavi’s Record after Barcelona’s 4-1 Win over Huesca

Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has equalled the club’s legend Xavi Hernandez’s record for the most appearances for the Blaugrana.

Barcelona made this known in a post via its website on Monday.

Messi achieved the record after featuring in Barcelona’s LaLiga 4-1 win over Huesca last night.

The match was Messi’s 767th appearance for Barcelona in all competitions so far. Xavi also featured 767 times for Barca before he left the LaLiga giants in 2015.

Meanwhile, a brace from Messi and a strike from Antoine Griezmann and Oscar Mingueza gave Ronald Koeman’s men all three points against Huesca at Camp Nou.

The win over Huesca means Barcelona are now in the second position on the LaLiga table, with 59 points from 27 games.

The Catalan club are four points behind league leaders, Atletico Madrid.
