Lionel Messi scores his 600th career goal for Barcelona

Lionel Messi has scored his 600th career goal for Barcelona during the La-liga top of the table tie against rivals Atletico Madrid at the weekend, the tie which Barca won 1:0 to extend the lead at the top of the La-liga table.

Messi brought up yet another landmark on Sunday when he scored his 600th career goal for club and country in Barcelona’s game against Atletico Madrid at Camp Nou.

Messi, 30, scored a free kick as Barca extended their lead at the top of La Liga to eight points with a 1-0 win.

It brought up 600 career goals — 539 for Barca and 61 for Argentina — in just his 747th appearance and took his tally for the season to 32 in all competitions.

Messi’s first-ever Barcelona goal arrived back in 2005 against Albacete and he became the club’s all-time leading goalscorer in 2015 when he overtook Paulino Alcantara, who netted 369 goals for the Catalan side between 1912 and 1927.

He famously brought up 500 goals for Barca during last April’s Clasico at the Santiago Bernabeu, scoring the stoppage-time winner as the Catalans beat Real Madrid 3-2.

Leo opened his account for Argentina in 2006, scoring in a friendly win against Croatia and his 61 goals for his country have come in 123 games.
