Leo Messi comes face to face with UD Las Palmas, the only team currently in the top flight that he has never managed to score against. He did not have much of an opportunity to do so in the first meeting of these two sides this season as he limped off with a ligament injury in the eighth minute of the game and was subsequently sidelined for almost two months.

Now, five months on, the Argentinean will meet the Canary Islanders again, at a strange time for a league match, given that the islands are an hour behind peninsular time and the game will therefore begin at 3pm. Despite the kick-off time, it is expected that the Estadio de Gran Canaria will receive the players with a mixture of rain and high winds, weather conditions that are rare on the island.

The Argentinean forwrd, who managed his league goal number 301 against Sporting on Wednesday, and Barça's 10,000th in the domestic competition, will be looking to increase his tally in Las Palmas. In the long list of his 'victims', Atlético de Madrid are his favourites, with 21 goals scored against them, followed by Sevilla, with 19, and Osasuna, who have had to pick the ball out of their net 17 times as a result of Messi's actions.

Messi averages 0.90 goals per game in league competition and is the top scorer in the history of La Liga. As well as this, he shares his goals out as follows: 172 in 167 games at the Camp Nou and 129 in 166 away fixtures since that October 16th of 2004 when he made his debut at Montjuic against Espanyol.
