Leo Messi’s achievement in reaching 500 official goals in a Barça shirt was the focus of attention ahead of the game against Osasuna. The FC Barcelona fans made a gesture of gratitude towards the Argentine after his two goal show on Sunday against Real Madrid in the Clásico took to yet another spectacular landmark.
Before kick off in the league clash at Camp Nou, the blaugrana faithful unfurled a large banner on one side of the stadium with a representation of the player alongside the all-important figure of 500.
The Club played its part in helping the fans celebrate Messi’s latest achievement by setting up a photocall with the Leo500 image, allowing people to take photos and share them on social media. Youngsters were also given the chance to have their face painted with the magical figure of 500.
