Lionel Messi reaches 50-goal plateau in a single season for the fifth time
Yet again, the Argentinian superstar achieves an incredible feat, which includes goals scored across all competitions

Lionel Messi continues to outdo himself — and at a frenetic pace. In Saturday’s match against Villarreal, the Barça number 10 found the net yet again. Messi’s goal in the 45th minute gave him 50 on the season across all competitions. This latest achievement comes after he scored his 500th goal for the Club in the Bernabéu against Real Madrid last month. The Argentine added another to his tally in the second half from the penalty spot in Barça’s 4-1 win over the ‘Yellow Submarine’.
Everyone knows how special the Argentinian striker is, and now he can add another feather to his cap, having scored 50 goals in a season for the fifth time in his career. Messi, now in his 13th season wearing the blaugrana colors, continues to demonstrate why he has won five Ballon d’Or awards.
