Lionel Messi was expected to find a way to beat Pelé’s goal record this season, it’s just a surprise that it took him so long after a slow start to the season.
He looks more like his usual self tonight with a lovely play in preparation for Barca, but he has also produced the iconic moment with the third goal that is sure to seal the game:

It’s a record that will probably never be broken because it’s a) ridiculous to score so many goals in the first place and b) players don’t stay in the same club for very long in the modern era, so this could go on for a long time indeed.
