The Argentine and his colleagues beat Los Blancos 3-0 on their own turf on the weekend, seeing the Blaugrana go 14 points clear of Zinedine Zidane's side in the La Liga table, and Messi was instrumental for the Catalan club on the day, scoring a goal and setting up one for teammate Aleix Vidal.

In doing so, the 30-year-old scored his 25th Clasico goal and became the first player to assist 14 strikes in the famous fixture, according to Bleacher Report. 

The forward also became the player who has individually scored the most times against Los Blancos across all competitions, and beat Gerd Muller's record of most strikes for a single European club.

Messi scored his 526th goal for Barca in the clash, beating the former record held by the German legend at Bayern Munich.

@msipholar wa lekhosi Penaldo scores more penalties than any other soccer player in history. I dont hear you complain then! Messi pulled kovacic out in the counter on 1st goal. He created attack when they gave that penalty away by putting the ball in box twice. Messi set up Vidal for 3rd goal. Did u even watch the game? #MadridFan... we played well nothing went in.

These are old news. Many players say he's the best because he is humble and doesn't praise himself. And he has respect for players before him and after him!
