Five- time Balloon D’or winner and the captain of the Argentine Senior National team, Lionel Messi has set a new record after battering Real Betis 6 goals to 1.
The game saw the Barcelona talisman register a brace and an assist, taking his total career goal tally to 663.
Messi after registering an assist and two goals in the match against Real Betis have now become Barcelona’s all time top goal scoarer with 663 goals in a record setting 768 appearances.
In those 768 games Lionel Messi has assisted as many as 291. Combining with his 663 goals means that the “Camp Nou Mafia” has been directly been involved in 954 goals in 768 games for Barcelona.
Messi also now holds the record for most wins with 537 matches out of the 768 games played. No other player in the history of the club has more wins than him.
The Barcelona captain is also the the player who has won the highest number of trophies with the team. Messi currently holds the record with 34 trophies.
I think it’s time to say “ Messi is Barcelona and Barcelona is Messi”.
