Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, on Thursday night, made history in his side’s Copa del Rey 5-0 victory over Leganes.
Barcelona defeated Legan�s at the Camp Nou to qualify for the quarter-finals of the competition, thanks to goals from Antoine Griezmann (1), Clement Lenglet (1), Lionel Messi (2) and Arthur Melo (1).
Messi’s brace against Legan�s means the Argentine captain has now reach 500 wins as an FC Barcelona player as reported by Barcelona’s official website on Thursday.
The 32-year-old sits at the head of the ranking of wins, ahead of second placed Xavi Hernandez (476) and Andr�s Iniesta (459).
Messi claimed his first win as a Bar�a player against Espanyol on 16 October 2004.
Only one team has managed to avoid defeat against Messi – UDA Gramanet who won 1-0 in the Copa del Rey in 2004/05 in their only clash with the Bar�a number 10.
