Barcelona striker Lionel Messi has become the first player in the history of La Liga to record 20 goals and 20 assists in a single season.

Messi is also the first player to reach 20 assists in a La Liga season since former team-mate Xavi in 2008-09.

The 33-year-old Messi is only the second player to achieve that feat in Europe’s top five leagues this century.

He is the second player after Thierry Henry to achieve the feat as the Frenchman had scored 24 goals and contributed 20 assists for Arsenal during the 2002-03 Premier League season.
