Lionel Messi can't do anything without breaking a record these days. His latest feat is a run of 18 consecutive goal-scoring La Liga matches, dating back to Barcelona's win at Mallorca in November 2012.

According to Barcelona officials (as per BBC Sport), Messi has overtaken the mark of 16 straight scoring games in a league season set by Polish striker Teodor Peterek in the 1937-38 season.

The reigning four-time Ballon d'Or winner (also a record), Messi topped Gerd Muller's haul of 85 goals in a calendar year in 2012. For more of his historic feats, see this list by B/R's Tre Atkinson.

This article break downs his remarkable run in La Liga. If Messi keeps scoring, I'll keep updating it.
