In stoppage time of the first half against Valencia CF, the six-time world footballer scored for the Catalans for the 643rd time and equaled Peles’ best goal for a single club. It was the Argentine’s 748th official game for Barca and at the same time his 450th goal in LaLiga.
In the home game, the Catalans struggled for Messi and goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen but only to a 2: 2 (1: 1). Mouctar Diakhaby (30) gave Valencia the lead after a corner kick. After Messi’s equalization (45th + 4), Ronald Araujo (52nd) marked the 2-1 for Barcelona. But Maximiliano Gomez (69th) scored the 2-2. A streak of two wins in a row came to an end for the Messi team. Valencia have been without a threesome for five games.
