BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Lionel Messi will chase the Spanish league scoring record on Saturday amid a state of near panic at Camp Nou caused by his comments that his future at Barcelona may not be secure.

Barcelona hosts a strong Sevilla side on Saturday while trailing leader Real Madrid by two points. Madrid visits promoted club Eibar on the same day.

Messi has been stuck on 250 league goals for the past three games, leaving him one shy of matching Telmo Zarra's all-time record.
