Messi Breaks Another Record To Become Barcelona All Time Highest Goal Scorer

Argentine striker, Lionel Messi has reached another milestone with Spanish club Barcelona. Messi scored a hat-trick in 7-0 thrashing of Osasuna on Sunday night to become Barcelona's all-time record goalscorer.

After a slow start, the hosts were sparked into life by Messi's opening goal as he flicked home at the near post from Alexis Sanchez's cross.

Sanchez was next on the scoresheet as he finished off a similar move involving Andres Iniesta and Jordi Alba before Iniesta's wonderful strike from 25 yards made it 3-0.

Messi then broke another record by registering his 370th Barca goal to overtake Paulinho Alcantara as the club's record marksman before rounding off his hat-trick in between further strikes from Cristian Tello and Pedro Rodriguez.

"To enter into the history of this club is spectacular," Messi told Barca TV.

"If you play in this team it is much easier. This group continues to do great things and I think it deserves to continue winning things."

 Next up for Barcelona is a trip to the Santiago Bernabeu next Sunday and Messi is sure they can get themselves back into the title race by ending Madrid's five-month unbeaten run in all competitions.

"I hope we see a good version of Barcelona and we can get a positive result, which we need to still be in there fighting for La Liga just a point behind.

"We have a unique opportunity to cut the gap on Madrid. It will be a very difficult game because we are playing away from home and Real Madrid is a great team playing with a lot of confidence. It will be difficult but it all depends on us."
