Incredible Messi only took 435 games to get to his 400th goal, scoring an average of 0.92 goals per game.
During Barcelona’s win over Leganes, Lionel Messi managed another impressive feat by reaching a historic milestone as he scored his 400th goal in LaLiga Santander. Since making his debut on match day seven of the 2004/05 season against Espanyol, he has never ceased to amaze the entire world.
Messi has everything in his bag-the Champions League, Super Cups and other continental trophies as well as the individual ones, such as The Best or the Ballon d’Or.
His first goal in the top flight came against Albacete on matchday 34 of his debut campaign and since then, he has put on a scoring clinic.
The season that perhaps stands out most is his stunningly successful 2011/12 campaign, in which he managed a phenomenal 50 goals. If we talk about his 400 goals in LaLiga Santander, 231 have come at the Camp Nou and 169 have been away goals, while 49 of them have been penalties.
Among his 400 finishes have been 83 braces and 31 hat-tricks, helping to put him 89 goals ahead of the league’s second top-scorer Ronaldo.
Between them, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have achieved a number of incredible goalscoring records and it might not be too long before one of them, possibly both, should eclipsed Pele in terms of their numbers at club level.
