The youngest player with 300 gamesTonight, for the first leg of the Spanish Cup Quarterfinals against Real Madrid, Messi will become the youngest player in the Blaugrana history to reach 300 official matches, with only 24 years and 6 months behind him, clearing Xavi Hernández (25 years and 8 months) and Andrés Iniesta (25 years and 9 months) from the record book.
Pichichi in the ‘Clasicos’Messi could also become the most prolific scorer in the Clasico. ‘La Pulga‘ has scored 13 goals so far against the Merengue (all goals were scored against Iker Casillas) and is only one short of his 14 goals scored by the best shooter in FC Barcelona history, César Rodríguez.
