The Argentine forward put Barcelona 2-1 up at Celta Vigo in the 73rd minute from a Cristian Tello cross.

It now means the 25-year-old becomes the first ever La Liga player to score against against every other team in the league in a row.

His scoring run started on November 11 and includes nine doubles and one four-goal performance against Osasuna.

"It's an unprecedented record. It proves what a great player he is," Barça assistant coach Jordi Roura told a news conference.

"Those of us who are lucky enough to experience this with him appreciate what he does, and are able to enjoy it.

"Only with time will we truly value what this player is doing. It's incredible."

However, Messi's milestone was not enough to hand the Blaugrana victory after they conceded a late equalizer to slip to a 2-2 draw.

"The least important thing is the streak," Messi told reporters after the match.

"I was fortunate to score in all those games and help the team to keep on track.

"But that's not important. We wanted to win after the effort of the squad that were selected but we could not."
