League goals record out of Lionel Messi's reach
Tuesday 14 May 2013
Barcelona forward Lionel Messi seems sure to miss the chance to break his record league goals tally after a hamstring injury ruled him out of the final three La Liga games of the season.
The 25-year-old currently has 46 goals from 32 appearances and looked poised to beat the 50-goal record he amassed last season
But the injury, sustained in the Champions League quarter-final first leg at Paris Saint-Germain on 2 April, means his season appears to have come to an end.
