Messi Scores 500th Barcelona Goal vs. Real Madrid to Win El Clasico

Lionel Messi reached yet another milestone in his extraordinary career as he netted his 500th goal for Barcelona against Real Madrid in El Clasico on Sunday.

His 500th goal was his second of the night, and it came in injury time, ensuring a Barcelona victory.

Messi made his competitive senior debut for Barcelona as a teenager in 2004.

He has since won eight La Liga titles and four UEFA Champions Leagues, and he has received the Ballon d’Or award on five occasions.

That he does not even play as a central striker makes his achievements even more remarkable, and it would be a brave punter who would bet against him getting to 600 goals and beyond for Barca before hanging up his boots.
