After equaling last week against Valencia, Lionel Messi has beaten yesterday Pelé’s record for the most goals recorded for the same club : 644 for FC Barcelona (Messi) , 643 for FC Santos (Pelé).

Lionel Messi reached a new landmark by scoring against Villareal when the 33-year-old scored after one of his fantastic actions.

It beated the mark set by Brazilian great Pele for Santos before he left for New York Cosmos in 1974. Messi’s goals have come in 749 matches, an average of one every 1.16 games; Pele’s came in 757 matches at one every 1.17 games. 

On July 1, in a 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid, Messi scored the 700th goal of his professional career – club and internationals combined . More than 15 years have passed since Messi opened his goal account with Barcelona. It was on May 1, 2005, against Albacete in La Liga in a 2-0 win.

In all, he has 681 goals in 802 appearances with Barcelona, if goals scored in ‘unofficial’ matches are also counted. The six-time Ballon d’Or winner is comfortably the club’s leading scorer, ahead of Cesar Rodriguez’s 230 goals, as well as in the history of the Spanish Championship. Messi also has won the most titles with the Catalan club – 34, including four Champions Leagues.

Matching Pele’s record has a strong resonance for the Argentinian star, coming just three weeks after the death of his compatriot and fellow icon Diego Maradona.

If just official matches are considered, the Brazilian is still behind Austrian and Czechoslovak striker Josef Bican, who scored 805 goals in his career which spanned three decades.
