Barcelona forward Lionel Messi broke another record in his side’s 2-1 win over Real Betis on Sunday night. Messi, 25, scored the two goals that lifted him over German striker Gerd Müller’s calendar goal record that was set in 1972. Last night’s two goals set the Argentinian striker’s 2012 tally at 86.
“I always say the same, it’s nice for what it means but the victory is more important as it maintains our lead over the other teams,” Messi modestly told Canal Plusafterwards. ”My goal when the year began was to try to achieve everything again, with the team, in the league, the (King’s) Cup, the Champions League. I always start with that idea in mind.”
