In October 2004, Frank Rijkaard decided to make a substitution in the match against Espanyol by introducing the young player Lionel Messi into the match.
From that moment, La liga was not the same anymore.
Now, with 442 more games and with many broken records, Messi will add another record, becoming the first foreign player with most matches in La Liga with today’s match against Girona in Camp Nou, .
In his 15 seasons, he has won 320 games, 66 draws and only 37 lost matches.
The Argentine will take the place of Dani Alves, who had this record so far. Girona has no good memories with Messi, who scored two goals in Barcelona’s 6-2 win last season.
The match is expected to take place tonight from 20:45.
