Against Leganés the Argentine star achieves the landmark figure as a Barça player
Leo Messi and records go hand in hand. The Argentine star has now recorded 500 victories as an FC Barcelona player thanks to the 5-0 victory against Leganés in the Copa del Rey at Camp Nou. The Barça number 10 sits at the head of the ranking of wins, ahead of second placed Xavi Hernández (476) and Andrés Iniesta (459).
Messi has achieved his 500th victory after 710 games.
On 16 October 2004 Leo Messi claimed his first win as a Barça player and against Espanyol and since then only one side has managed to avoid defeat against the Argentine – UDA Gramanet who won 1-0 in the Copa del Rey in 2004/05 in their only clash with the Barça number 10.
