Messi breaks Xavi's LaLiga record

LaLiga

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi broke yet another record on Sunday despite his side dropping points at the Camp Nou.

It may have been a disappointing afternoon for the Catalan giants after drawing 1-1 with Cadiz, but the Argentine forward added another milestone to his collection with his 506th LaLiga appearance.

The six-time Ballon d'Or now holds the record for most appearances in the competition by a Barcelona player, surpassing his former teammate Xavi Hernandez.

There was another milestone on the day as Sergio Busquets brought up his 400th Spanish top-flight appearance for the club, making him the fourth Blaugrana player to reach that feat.

However, Sunday's result leaves Koeman's side eight points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid, with the Dutch tactician claiming the draw was tougher to take than Tuesday's loss to Paris Saint-Germain.

"It's disappointing. These kind of games have to be won and we didn't do it," Koeman told Marca, as per Football Italia.

"It's a big opportunity lost after the Atletico Madrid defeat. It's a big disappointment. I'm very disappointed, more so than last Tuesday. We couldn't let the two points slip away. We are disappointed."
