Six-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi has netted 642 targets for Barca throughout all competitions following his strike in final week’s 1-0 victory over Levante.
On the looming report, Koeman advised reporters of the 33-year-old attacker: “Properly, [Messi’s] stats are wonderful. I don’t assume we’ll ever have one other participant at this membership who has on condition that a lot by way of effectiveness.
“That’s why he’s the primary. He’s an important participant, as we noticed the opposite day [against Levante]. Our assault relies upon loads on Leo.
“They’re huge stats… I don’t know what number of hat-tricks he has scored already. As soon as once more, it’s unbelievable what he has finished for this membership.”

Messi has been concerned in 14 targets in his 10 house LaLiga video games towards Sociedad (10 targets and 4 assists), together with registering 4 targets and two assists in his previous 5 such appearances towards the membership within the prime flight.
Barca – eighth within the desk and 9 factors off the tempo – have received their previous 22 LaLiga video games on house soil towards Sociedad.
Koeman’s males might equal their longest ever profitable run at house to Sociedad within the competitors (23 between 1929 and 1961).
