The Argentine great chalked up another milestone as he swept a free kick past Jan Oblak on Sunday at Camp Nou.
Lionel Messi has scored his 600th career goal, netting against Atletico Madrid in Barcelona’s vital La Liga clash against Atletico Madrid.
With 26 minutes on the clock, Barca were awarded a free kick outside their visitors’ box, and Messi executed a shot that had too much pace on it for Jan Oblak to keep out. The shot-stopper got a touch to the effort but could not claw it away.
It was Messi’s third goal from a direct free kick in as many matches and brought up fresh milestone for the Argentine attacker.
In his 747th appearance for Barcelona, he has now netted 539 times, while for Argentina he has found the target on a more modest 61 occasions in 123 outings.
The 30-year-old debuted for Barca in the 2004-05 season and has since amassed incredible figure, having scored at least 40 goals in all competitions for his club side in each season since 2009-10.
