Lionel Messi delivered once again on for Barcelona as they thrashed Eibar 6-1 at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night.



Leo banged in the opening goal from the penalty spot in the 20th minute.

And he eventually went home with the match ball after scoring four coolly finished goals.

Performances so far have left the fans wanting more and are already looking forward to seeing him in action against Girona.

In five games, Messi has opened up a clear lead at the top of the La Liga goal scoring standings.





And starts shows that he has broken his own previous record in terms of his start to a season.

In five games Messi has scored a total of nine La Liga goals, beating his previous best start back in the 2011/12 season when he scored 8 goals.

The season is still in it’s early days and there’s no sign Messi has any intentions of slowing down.

However, while Messi has beaten his own record, his 9 goals in five matches is not a La Liga record.

The best ever start to a La Liga campaign is 10 goals in five matches held by Pruden, Marcelino Campanal and Pahino.

Messi could have equaled or surpassed that record if two out of his three attempts that struck the post against Real Betis had gone in.
