Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are undoubtedly the greatest footballers of all-time. The five-time Ballon d’Or winners own most of the records in football, let alone La Liga. But there are a few records which seem to be so tough that not even any of the two greats will break. Here are the 5 La Liga records that neither Ronaldo nor Messi have broken yet
5. The most La Liga appearances

At the moment, the duo of Messi and Ronaldo is not even in the top 10 of most appearances in La Liga history. The record is held by ex-Barcelona goalkeeper Andoni Zubizarreta. Zubizarreta has appeared in 629 La Liga games. Messi has made 419 appearances in La Liga so far, while Cristiano Ronaldo has made only 294. It would take Messi at least 6 more seasons to get there. And with his age, it seems impossible.
4. The fastest goal in La Liga

The record for the fastest goal in La Liga history is held by Seydou Keita. He set it in a Valencia shirt when he scored just 7.6 seconds after the kick off against Almeira. Messi’s fastest goal in La Liga came in 2:36 against Racing Santander in August 2010. With their pace decreasing due to the age, would Messi and Ronaldo net in the first five seconds of the game?
3. The most consecutive hat-tricks

Both Messi and Cristiano have scored a total of 63 hat-tricks (Ronaldo: 34 and Messi: 29) in La Liga so far. Well, they’re both goal machines. The two have scored back-to-back hat tricks on quite a few occasions but NEVER managed to score three in a row. The only player to have achieved this in La Liga history was Real Oviedo’s Isidro Langara who scored a hat-trick of hat-tricks in 1935.
