Messi, who equaled La Liga’s all-time hat trick record with his strikes against Levante, has now surpassed the German legend among the top-5 leagues’ all-time scorers.

Fischer scored a career total of 268 league goals between 1968 and 1988 for Schalke, Cologne and Bochum.

Following his hat trick on Sunday, Messi surpassed Fischer’s 268 goal tally, with 269 strikes for Barcelona.

The Argentine only needs six more goals to move into ninth position, surpassing Italy’s Silvio Piola.

Messi’s long-standing rival Cristiano Ronaldo is currently in sixth place with 289 goals (84 for Manchester United and 205 for Real Madrid).

Alan Shearer (283 goals) and Gordon Hodgson (287 goals) are also on the list, between Messi and Ronaldo.
