Messi's stunning free kick in the 4-0 demolition of Sevilla on Sunday not only made him the highest ever goal scorer against Sevilla but also in all of Europe's top five leagues. What a remarkable way to end his fiercest rival's (Cristiano Ronaldo) goal scoring record!

That strike marked his 420th goal in 455 La Liga games, surpassing Ronaldo's record of 419 goals in 525 games for Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus respectively. No one has scored more goals in fewer games than Leo. It's unlikely that his Rival will surpass the record based on their age difference. With Messi (32), two years younger than Ronaldo (35).

Also, Barca's four-goal mauling of Sevilla made it a total of 300 goals scored under Ernesto Valverde - Messi leading the chart with 97 goals.
