Leo Messi makes history with his 400th goal for Barcelona / FCB

Leo Messi never stops breaking records! His goal against Valencia made him the first player ever to score 400 goals for FC Barcelona, and he only took 471 games to get there. Deep into injury time on Saturday he was one-on-one with Diego Alves and tried to chip the visiting keeper. The trick didn’t work, but Alves failed to hold onto the ball and it fell at the Argentinian’s feet, who left-footed it into the back of the net.

Incredibly, Messi has a career average of 0.85 goals a game, the kind of record very few elite players have ever come close to. Those goals include 278 in La Liga, having dwarfed the legendary tally set by Zarra that most people thought would be impossible to beat in the modern era. He is also the highest goalscorer in Champions League history with 75, and has a further 32 in the Spanish Cup. His other goals came in the Spanish Super Cup (10), European Super Cup (1) and the Club World Cup (4).

46 goals in 2014/15

Messi is enjoying yet another stellar season. He’s scored 46 goals in 46 games, 35 in the league, three in the cup and eight in the Champions League.
