Lionel Messi took his senior career goals tally to 301 as he scored twice in Barcelona’s 5-0 victory at Rayo Vallecano which put them three points clear at the top of La Liga on Saturday.
The World Player of the Year got Barca’s second just after halftime and finished off the rout with another at the end. The 25-year-old has now scored 270 goals for his club and 31 for Argentina.
Spain players David Villa, Xavi and Cesc Fabregas scored the others as Barcelona continued their unbeaten start under new coach Tito Vilanova and moved on to 25 points from nine games.
“We are delighted for Lionel,” Vilanova told a news conference.
