Messi Surpasses Gerd Muller

Lionel Messi scored from the penalty spot as Barcelona opened up a 14-point gap over their rivals Real Madrid with a resounding 3-0 win at the Bernabeu on Saturday.

Messi’s strike was his 526th in all competitions for Baracelona meaning he becomes the highest all-time goalscorer in Europe’s top five leagues for a single club.

The spot-kick was Messi’s 526th strike in all competitions for Barcelona meaning he breaks Bayern Munich legend Gerd Muller’s record for the most goals for a single club in Europe’s top five leagues.

Muller scored 525 times for Bayern in 572 appearances between 1965 and 1979 while Messi’s total has been achieved in 608 appearances for the Catalans.
