Barcelona star Lionel Messi breaks two incredible records with El Clasico goal vs Real Madrid

Lionel Messi has broken two records today as his goal puts Barcelona 2-0 up against Real Madrid in El Clasico, further confirming his status as a legend of the game.

The Argentine forward has long been regarded as the best player in the world and perhaps the greatest of all time, and he continues to make history with his stellar goalscoring performances.

Messi notably hit the winner at the Bernabeu last season, with his stoppage-time strike in a 3-2 win over Real his 500th goal for Barcelona.

The 30-year-old is now on 526 goals for the Catalan giants – the most ever scored by a single player for a European club, overtaking Gerd Muller’s tally of 525 for Bayern Munich.
