Going into Wednesday’s Champions League tie with Liverpool, Lionel Messi had failed to score against the five-time European champions.
Starting the night on 598 goals for Barcelona – exactly 14 years to the day he scored his first for the club – it was almost written in the stars that the diminutive Argentine forward would find the back of the net and hit the 600-mark.
Messi didn’t disappoint. He opened his account in the second half, scoring from a rebound after Luis Suárez hit the crossbar.
Then he smashed home a stunning free-kick past Alisson, giving his side a 3-0 home lead to take to Anfield and sent the internet wild.
Of his 600 Barcelona goals, 112 have come in the Champions League. But can you name every club he has scored against in Europe’s elite competition?
