Lionel Messi secured yet another landmark on Sunday night as he scored Barcelona’s second of the game in a 2-0 win over Villarreal.

The goal’s is Messi’s 525th for Barca, putting him level with Gerd Muller as the top scorer with one club in Europe.

Another goal will put Messi out on his own and he will be looking to get that strike next time out against Deportivo La Coruna.

Opta also showed how Messi is out on his own in the goalscoring stakes in this calendar year.

Barca have just two games to go now before the winter break, against Deportivo and Real Madrid, let’s hope Messi can add to his tally in both matches.
