FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi set two incredible records in their sensational 8-2 victory that moved the champions to the summit of LaLiga.
After falling behind in the third minute to the newly promoted side at the Camp Nou, Messi inspired the champions to a third consecutive league win.
In the process of the 8-1 mauling that followed, the club record scorer grabbed his 383rd league goal and 151 assist for the Blaugrana.

It also marked the 37th side in Spanish top-flight history that the Argentina international has scored against.
Real Madrid's Raúl González managed to score against 35 different clubs in the Spanish top flight but Messi went past that landmark figure last season and extended his record with his goals against the newly promoted side.
