Lionel Messi’s epic run v Cordoba (video)
- December 13, 2012
Lionel Messi took his tally to 88 goals in 2012 on Wednesday evening with a brace against Cordoba in the Copa del Rey.
It was the fifth consecutive away match that Lionel Messi has scored two goals, which in itself is an amazing statistic.
Messi now has three games remaining in 2012 (Atletico Madrid h, Cordoba h and Real Valladolid a) to add to his exceptional tally and beat off any late claims to his record, including Zico (89 goals in 1979) and Godfrey ‘Ucar’ Chitalu.
Besides Messi’s two-goal haul against Cordoba his run which can be seen on the GIF above and video below, was truly exceptional.
