Lionel Messi con­tin­ues his quest to be­come the all-time lead­ing goalscorer in La Liga just days after equalling a sim­i­lar feat in the Cham­pi­ons League when Barcelona visit Almeria on Satur­day.

The Ar­gen­tine is just one goal short of the 251 goals Telmo Zarra scored for Ath­letic Bil­bao be­tween 1940 and 1955, but has been kept score­less in his last La Liga out­ings. That down­turn in form has co­in­cided with Luis Suarez’s in­tro­duc­tion to the side after serv­ing his four­month ban.
