Lionel Messi tonight against Sevilla will play his jubilee 600th official match for Barcelona and so will become the third player in the history of the Catalans who did it.
Only legendary Xavi with 767 and Iniesta with 642 matches before Messi arrived to that great figure.
“It’s a tremendous job to play such matches for the same club and to get as much goals as assists. Messi is of great importance to this club, “coach Ernesto Valverde said.
Messi made his debut for Barcelona in 2004, and on 599 matches so far, he scored an amazing 523 goals and a record 360 in La Liga.
With Barcelona he won eight titles in La Liga, five King’s Cups, six supercups of Spain, four Champions League, three European supercups and three world club championships.
