Lionel Messi made yet more history on Thursday night as he became the first player in the history of Spanish football to reach 500 club victories.

The GOAT secured the landmark during Barca’s 5-0 win over Leganes in the last 16 of the Copa del Rey at the Camp Nou.

And Messi being Messi he did it with a bit of style too, scoring two goals and grabbing an assist as Quique Setien’s men bounced back from the weekend’s defeat to Valencia.

It has taken Mesi 710 games to register his 500th victory, and he has scored 622 goals and picked up 241 assists along the way. Not bad.
