Lionel Messi set to draw level with another Barcelona icon by achieving unbelievable feat in tonight’s game

Lionel Messi will tonight achieve an extraordinary feat for Barcelona, drawing level with another club legend at the top of the all-time appearance rankings.

It feels as though Messi has been around since time began, so it’s no surprise that, considering he’s spent his entire career to date at Barcelona, he’s set to be their leading appearance maker.

At current, it’s the great Xavi, who has since retired and turned to management in the far east, who tops the rankings. Tonight, though, as Barcelona take to the field against Heusca, Messi will join him on the podium.

Regardless of whether he extends his contract at the end of the season, you can be sure that, barring a career-ending injury sustained tonight, Messi will be the outright leader further down the line.

By the time he calls time on his Barcelona career, you wonder if there’s going to be a single record left that he hasn’t broken.
