Record setting
Lionel Messi's 2012 in one beautiful infographic
Barcelona star set a new world record for for goals scored in a calendar year in 2012.

BARCELONA HAVE RELEASED this beautiful infographic of Lionel Messi’s record-setting 2012.

It shows the Argentinian was almost equally prolific at home and away but heavily favoured his left foot during the year.

Malaga and Bayer Leverkusen were his favourite teams to play against, scoring six versus both, while it will come as no surprise that Iniesta provided the assist for more than 10% of his club goals.

We think you’ll agree, it’s a thing of beauty.
