Messi eyeing Barca record

The Barcelona record Messi will set if they win the Spanish Super Cup

The Argentine icon will surpass former captain Andres Iniesta should the Blaugrana beat Sevilla on Sunday.

Lionel Messi is gearing up for the upcoming season with the goal of banishing the nightmare of his disappointing World Cup campaign. Before embarking on their title defense, the Argentine will take to the pitch in the team's curtain-raiser against Sevilla in the Spanish Super Cup.

La Pulga and Co. will fancy their odds of winning the title, which will be a first with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner as the first-choice captain. Additionally, the 31-year-old will also make history should he guide the Catalan giant to a win on Sunday.

Should Leo lift the title, he will become the club's most successful player with 33 trophies. Currently, Messi holds that record with Iniesta at 32, but with the Spaniard gone, the Argentine could move ahead.

Reading the iconic number 10's accolade list at the Camp Nou is astonishing. Nine league titles are under his belt alongside four Champions League wins, six Copa del Rey titles, three UEFA Super Cup wins, three FIFA Club World Cup triumphs, and seven Spanish Super Cup victories.

It should also be noted that Sevilla, the Blaugrana's opponent this weekend, is the club that Messi has scored the most goals against (31 in 33 matches). Furthermore, the South American legend holds a number of Spanish Super Cup records.

No player has scored more times that Leo in this competition. On top of that, he holds the record for most finals and most consecutive finals scored in.

Only time will tell whether the Barcelona skipper will lead his side to the title. If he does, another feat will be added to his long list of achievements.
