Samitier, who played for FC Barcelona from 1919 to 1933, played his last match in the cup on June 9, 1932. It was, curiously enough, against Athletic Club, in a final held at Chamartin that ended in a 1-0 defeat.

Behind Messi and Samitier (75 games), lie Andrés Iniesta (73), Vicenç Piera (71) and Xavi Hernández (70) as the club's most prolific Copa del Rey participants.

11 goals from another record

As well as his milestone for games played, Lionel Messi is just 11 goals from matching the record for top goalscorer of all time in the cup. Samitier is also the pacesetter in that regard, with 64 goals, whilst Messi is on 53, having overtaken Kubala (49) last season.
