Messi 700 times in shirt Barcelona
Lionel Messi will play his seven hundredth match for FC Barcelona on Wednesday. The opponent in Camp Nou is Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
Only one player wore Barça’s shirt even more often than the Argentinian, and that was Xavi. That came to 767 duels. However, Messi can present more prizes than anyone else. He has won 35 trophies with the Catalan club and individually he owns five Golden Balls (best football player in the world) and six Golden Shoes (European top scorer of the year).
Barcelona listed some Messi figures on the website. He scored 612 goals in 699 duels, 40 of them through a hat trick, and 235 assists. He scored six goals in a match once.
