Another game, another goal and yet another landmark for Lionel Messi who was on target during Barcelona’s Copa del Rey clash with Espanyol on Thursday.

The Argentine struck after 25 minutes to make it 2-0 to Barcelona, although his strike did take a wicked deflection before flying past goalkeeper Pau Lopez.

Messi won’t care though, and neither do we, particularly as it’s yet another landmark for the Barcelona legend.

The goal was actually Barcelona’s 4000th at Camp Nou.

That’s an awful lot of goals, but fitting that Messi, who has also scored an awful lots of goals, is the man to get it.
