Lionel Messi scored a goal while leading FC Barcelona to a 2-2 tie against Celta de Vigo on Saturday. With his goal, Messi becomes the first player in history to score against every team in La Liga in succession.
Messi started the game as captain. It is only the second time that Leo has started a game as captain of Barcelona.
Celta got the scoring going in the 38th minute. Natxo Insa was at the right place at the right time to scoop up the goal. Once again, the Barcelona defense struggled and was exposed.
Tello tied it up in the 43rd minute after a fabulous pass from Messi to Cristian, who stayed onside and blasted a shot to the far right side of the net for the equalizer.
Messi made history in the 73rd minute when his great through ball to Tello led to Cristian giving it back to Lionel, and Messi slammed it in the back of the net for the lead and for history. Messi becomes the first player in Liga history to score in 19 straight games and score against every team in La Liga in succession.
But just when it looked like Barcelona were on their way to victory, Celta equalized late as Borja Oubiña's header beat Pinto and gave Celta a crucial point for them as they try and get out of the relegation zone.
