VIDEO: Watch Lionel Messi score 50th goal of season, 401st for Barcelona

The greatest footballer ever… dead or alive!


Lionel Messi is a machine.

The Argentine striker scored his 50th goal of the season on Saturday, as Barcelona beat city rivals Espanyol 2-0 to stay top of the La Liga standings.

Messi set up Neymar for Barca’s first goal and his cheeky finish at the near post to put the Catalan giants 2-0 up in the derby was his 50th goal of the season in all competitions for Barcelona and Argentina.

That’s quite a landmark. Well, it would be had Messi not done anything like that before but it is now the fourth straight campaign that the 27-year-old has scored 50 or more goals for club and country.

Think about that… Remarkable. Messi still has a long way to go to beat his personal best of 73 goals in 60 games for Barca back in 2011-12 but he’s working on it.
