Written by thrilliant on May 2, 2019
Lionel Messi came off the bench to hand Barcelona its fourth La Liga title in five years in a 1-0 defeat of Levante.
Messi broke Andre Iniesta’s record as the player with the most La Liga titles with Barcelona, setting a new record at 10 titles, one title ahead of the Spanish midfielder.
Messi broke the deadlock in the 61st minute when he picked up Arturo Vidal’s header inside the box and curled a low shot past Aitor Fernandez.
This goal was his 24th league goal as a substitute, the highest from any player off the bench in at least 19 years.
Messi ultimately sealed the victory with a cool finish to ensure treble-chasing Barca remain on course for a memorable season for the club’s 26th La Liga title on Saturday.
