The Argentine netted his side's fourth goal in their 4-2 comeback win over Real Sociedad on Sunday.

In so doing, Messi broke Muller's record for the most goals for a single European club across the top five leagues, which the German set up in 1979.

Muller famously scored 365 goals for Bayern Munich, but Messi has now gone one above the legendary Germany striker.

In addition, Messi also closed in on Ronaldo's European record for the most league goals among Europe's top five leagues.

The Portuguese, who once again failed to hit the back of the net in Real Madrid's 1-0 defeat to Villarreal on Saturday, currently sits on 373 league goals – 84 for Manchester United and 289 since joining Los Blancos.
