Will anyone ever beat Lionel Messi’s incredible tally of 91 goals in a calendar year set in 2012?
The Barcelona forward completed his incredible calendar year with the second Barcelona goal at Valladolid and fittingly it was a beauty, drilling home into the bottom corner.
Yet again, there are some incredible statistics surrounding Messi’s goal scoring exploits in 2012.
He only failed to score against 6 of his 37 opponents in 2012: Benfica, Celta de Vigo, Chelsea, Villarreal, Peru and Saudi-Arabia.
And with 26 goals scored so far in La Liga this season (2012/2013), Messi would be top scorer in 46 previous seasons.
