Messi breaks astonishing CR7 record

FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi broke another astonishing Cristiano Ronaldo record with a just another magical moment of LaLiga history.
 
Despite finishing the match with just nine men on the pitch, the LaLiga champions thumped Sevilla 4-0 to move up to second place, just two points adift of rivals Real Madrid.
 
The Blaugrana scored three goals in eight first-half minutes, the first an acrobatic effort from Luis Suarez, before Messi wrapped up the three points late on.
 
And Messi's efffort was his 420th in La Liga, breaking Cristiano Ronaldo's record of 419 goals scored in Europe's 'top five' leagues - Spain, England, Germany, Italy and France.
 
Messi broke the record of most club goals in Europe's top leagues in 70 games less than the Juventus ace.
 
Sunday's four-goal haul also took Barcelona's total scored under coach Ernesto Valverde to more than 300, with Messi, unsurprisingly, leading the charts with 97.
