Lionel Messi scores for FC Barcelona, ties Pele’s world record of goals

21

Lionel Messi scored for FC Barcelona as he tied Pele’s world record of most goals scored for a single club.

Messi continues to break records, this time for Barcelona. With Valencia leading 1-0, Barcelona were awarded a penalty. Messi saw his penalty saved but the ball would fall to Jordi Alba who would cross it into the area and Messi would score a header to draw Barcelona level.

That goal was Messi’s 843rd for Barcelona as he drew level with Pele for most goals ever scored for a single club.

Congratulations to Lionel Messi on another record.

    • Doubt it’s that serious, because he actually got up and tried to continue but felt he couldn’t, I’d say maybe 2 weeks, but then again I can’t say for sure unless I get to examine his leg.

  1. Bielsa is the most stubborn coach of the world, doesnt learn from anything. This style with these B-category defending players is suicide, Leeds will probably conceede close to 100 goals.

  2. I don’t understand how no one else seems to be really concerned about lo celso’s fitness . For the national team without him we have no creativity in the midfield period . We saw that in the last qualifiers . Hopefully he will be fit at the end of March .

  3. Congrats to Messi for reaching another milestone; unfortunately he should leave Barca, which already loss the spirit and enthusiasm to win plus need to be refresh. and Messi have to be realistic and accept lest payment 🙂

    Best of luck legend

  4. Why Foyth had been substituted of? Is he injured again? Him, Romero, licha Martinez, sensi, Medina, Perez, balerdi are very important for national team back line set up. Some time lo celso gets injured. Injury in crucial moment is the worst enemy of argentina

    • Foyth played only first half. Commentator was saying he slightly limped & maybe has taken a knock. His game was ok..nothing exceptional nor bad. Will need to see a few more games in DM role to comment . I jus felt he was not moving into positions to receive ball & some more mobility is needed . But cld have been coach tactic as other midfielders were playing more high & emery may have wanted him to be pure defensive in yesterday game. Biggest worry in foyth is fitness .

    • Like amit said he was ok and nothing exceptional and it’s hard to tell from the game cos the opposition were reduced to 10 men early in the first half and subsequently didn’t offer much opposition.
      I still maintain that Juan is made for midfield and I like how Emery is being careful with him but amit is right again in saying that his fitness is an issue because I fear that he’s in the ‘made of glass’ mold along with the likes of Lamela, Lanzini, Pastore and Gago, hope I’m wrong.

  5. 6 goals and 6 assists in 16 matches for Buendía. Almost every game I see that he has contributed something. Does anyone know if there are clubs that want him for January?

    • Arsenal, but please there NO, he wont even fit in 3-4-3, speedsters play in the wing there, maybe as Ceballos replacement as ZM, but he is more attacking minded.

        • Emi would kill it at Liverpool, he’s made for Klopp’s style. Another club he would be good for would be Atletico with their new found attacking style but Simeone’s record with Argentines isn’t exactly glowing, maybe at Celta with Coudet if they continue with their ascension.

          • I would love to see him at Atlético or Celta, as I fear he would not see much game time at Liverpool given that they now have a lot of other midfielders
