Messi matches Casillas' LaLiga wins record
Yet another record was claimed by Barcelona great Lionel Messi on Saturday as he moved onto 334 LaLiga wins.
Lionel Messi equalled Iker Casillas' record for career LaLiga victories as he led Barcelona past Espanyol on Saturday.
The Barca captain grabbed both goals towards the end of the second half to settle the Catalan derby, although his breakthrough strike was aided by a clumsy Victor Sánchez deflection.
Messi equal with Casillas
That late show saw Messi claim his latest piece of history, tying Real Madrid great Casillas on 334 wins in Spain's top flight - a record he will undoubtedly surpass in the coming weeks.
This latest milestone came on a day when Messi moved past another Spain great, Andres Iniesta, into second place on Barca's all-time appearances list.
He has played 675 times for the Blaugrana, still some way short of Xavi's total of 767 appearances.
