Lionel Messi wore a Barcelona shirt for the 700th time on Wednesday and played a starring role to lead his side to a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund at the Camp Nou.
The Barca captain scored and picked up two assists against Lucien Favre’s side after becoming just the second player in the club’s history to reach 700 appearances.
Here’s how it all breaks down:
