Lionel Messi reached yet another landmark in a career packed full of them on Wednesday night, as he made his 700th appearance for Barcelona.

The Barcelona captain led out the team at Butarque to face Leganes almost 15 years since making his debut against Porto in a friendly in November 2003.

Only Andres Iniesta and Xavi have made more appearances for Barcelona than Messi. Iniesta stands on 758 games, while Xavi managed a whopping 869.

Messi does have more titles than any other player to have featured for Barcelona.

He’s picked up 33 trophies during his time at the Camp Nou and there may well be a few more by the time he’s finished.
