Lionel Messi polished off his record year with his 91st and final goal of 2012 in Barcelona’s 3-1 win at Valladolid on Saturday night. Expected to win his fourth FIFA Player of the Year award next month, Messi finished 2012 with 79 goals for Barcelona — 59 in the Spanish league, 13 in the Champions League, five in the Copa del Rey and two in the Spanish Super Cup. He had 12 for Argentina — five in World Cup qualifiers and seven in exhibition games. Messi broke Gerd Mueller’s 40-year-old record of 85 goals for Bayern Munich and Germany.
Brilliant year for Leo Messi and the Blaugrana. I think it’s all but a lock Messi win’s the FIFA Player of the Year. I also find it hard to believe anyone is going to beat Barca in the Champs League, but you never know.
Hit the jump to see Messi’s historic 91st goal…
