The Argentine's goal, his 14th against arch rival Real Madrid, allows him to equal César's record as Barça's all-time scorer against Los Blancos
Leo Messi keeps on breaking records. This Thursday he became the all-time highest FC Barcelona goalscorer in Clásicos, level with César, with 14 goals. The Argentine genius made sure to nail his penalty shot after Ramos brought down Iniesta in the box. His goal gave FC Barcelona the lead.
Di Stéfano, 18 goals
The all-time record holder, however, is the Argentine Alfredo Di Stéfano. The once Real Madrid player scored a total of 18 goals in La Liga Clásicos. Leo Messi is also the only player to score in four consecutive Spanish Super Cup matches. In past editions of the tournament, Leo scored against Athletic Club and Sevilla.
