Real Betis 1-2 Barcelona – Highlights

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi broke Gerd Muller’s record of 85 goals in a calendar year as his brace helped Tito Vilanova’s side to victory at Real Betis.

The Argentina international grabbed the opener in the 16th minute with a trademark dribble and finish to move level with the German striker, who achieved the feat in 1972.

His second goal of the evening, and 86th in a remarkable 2012, came with another left-footed shot past Betis goalkeeper Adrian after he had been teed up by Andres Iniesta after 25 minutes.

Betis headed into the game in fifth place in the Primera Division having beaten Real Madrid in their last home league match a fortnight ago.
