Messi Reaches Incredible Personal Milestone

Following his brace in FC Barcelona's win over Lyon in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night, superstar Lionel Messi reached yet another terrific personal milestone.

The Argentine was on hand to score twice in the Catalan club's emphatic 5-1 win over Lyon, which helped send the Blaugrana through to quarter-final stage of the competition. 

Messi opened the scoring with an audacious panenka penalty in the 18th minute, before striking a second time in the 78th minute. 

With his first goal, the Argentine brought up his 35th strike of the season, a tally he has now reached in the past 11 consecutive campaigns. 

'Messi Is The World's Best, But We Need To Stop Him'

The 31-year-old has now found the back of the net on 36 occasions in as many matches across all competitions for Barca so far this season, and has also assisted a further 21 strikes.
