David Ramos/Getty Images(BARCELONA, Spain) — Lionel Messi has broken another record.  Messi scored four goals to pass the 200-mark in the Spanish league on Sunday.

Messi’s four goals led Barcelona to a 5-1 win over Osasuna.  The 25-year-old became the youngest player in La Liga history to reach 200 goals, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

“We went out there and took care of business like always,” Messi said, who now has a total of 202 goals. “It was important to put the game away because it isn’t easy when everyone is talking so much about the ‘clasico’.”

Messi is now the eighth player to reach 200 goals in the Spanish league.
