By David Kappel - Apr 13, 2018 09:00 PM @kappilinho

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has climbed to third position in an illustrious group of just eight players who have scored more than 500 goals for a single team, but remains almost 100 strikes shy of Pele's record tally.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see which eight players have scored more than 500 goals for one club.

The Argentine scored a hat-trick in his side's 3-1 win over Leganes on the weekend, taking his tally for the current campaign to 39 strikes.

Overall, he has now scored to score 546 goals in 630 appearances for the Catalan giants. His exploits against Leganes saw him move above Sporting Lisbon legend Fernando Peyroteo in the '500 goals for one team' club –Peyroteo finished his career with 544 goals in official appearances for the Portuguese side.

Messi now only has Bayern Munich legend Gerd Muller and Brazil icon Pele ahead of him. The German retired with 566 goals in all competitions for the Bavarians between 1965 and 1979, while Pele's record is said to be 643 official goals for FC Santos during his active days.

Madrid fans. You would swear the have just won a title. Barca is on the verge of winning la liga the 7th time the last 10 years if am not mistaken so why speak about the third team on the log
