FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has become the ninth highest all-time scorer in history across Europe's top five leagues.
Following his brace against Eibar on Saturday, Messi has equalled Silvio Piola in ninth position with 274 goals.
The Italian scored his 274 goals in Serie A for Pro Vercelli, Lazio, Juventus and Novara, while Messi scored all of his for Barcelona.
The next star on Messi's hunt to become the most prolific goal-scorer in European history is Alan Shearer, who is with 283 goals just nine strikes ahead of him.
Gordon Hodgson (287 goals) and Messi rival Ronaldo (291) are then the next on the list.
However, Messi is still 92 short of Jimmy Greaves' total of 366 in the English First Division, while Delio Onnis (299), Dixie Dean (310), Steve Bloomer (317) and Gerd Mueller (365) are also still ahead of Messi.
With 32 La Liga goals, the Argentine has also overtaken Ronaldo in the La Liga goal scoring charts and already bettered his return from last season.
If he continues at his current goal-scoring rate of over one goal per game, Messi could still move into seventh position in the European all-time scoring ranking before the end of the season.
