Barcelona player Lionel Messi, has scored his 420th goal in La Liga, breaking Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of 419 goals scored in Europe’s ‘top five’ leagues — Spain, England, Germany, Italy and France.

Messi’s goal was a spectacular one because it was scored in Barca’s comprehensive win against Sevilla.

Barcelona hammered Sevilla 4-0 to stay within two points of Real Madrid at the top of La Liga despite finishing the match with just nine men on the pitch,.

The home side scored three goals in eight first-half minutes, the first an acrobatic effort from Luis Suarez, before Messi wrapped up the three points late on.

Sunday’s four-goal haul took Barcelona’s total scored under coach Ernesto Valverde to more than 300, with Messi, unsurprisingly, leading the charts with 97.
