The Argentine international has broken multiple records for Barcelona over the years, but perhaps this was the biggest one of them all.
The 26-year-old added his second to put Barcelona 4-0 up at home to lowly Osasuna, and in doing so, netted his 370th goal for Barcelona in all competitions – making him their top goal-scorer in history.
Despite currently not being at the top his game as a result of past injuries, Messi is still performing to sensational standards and followed up his goal against Manchester City with another double today.
Barcelona currently lie in third place in La Liga, and their imminent victory over Osasuna will leave them four points behind Real Madrid going in to next week’s el classico clash at the Bernabeu.
The game promises to be a spectacle, and will serve as a warm-up to their Copa D=del Rey final in Valencia next month.
Barcelona will be hoping Messi can remain fit for the rest of the season, as his goals alone may just be the difference between landing a major trophy or not.
370 goals – a phenomenal achievement, and a figure which may not be broken for a very long time.
