It's makes for astonishing viewing and shows how the 32-year-old has dominated football over the last 13 years.
He'll be looking to add to his records this year as Barcelona look to win La Liga as well as the Champions League.
They'll be facing Napoli in the round of 16 in Europe's elite competition.
All eyes are on Wednesday however as they face Real Madrid in the first El Clasico of the season.
Messi has recently said that he misses rival Cristiano Ronaldo playing for 'Los Blancos' as it added more tension to the match.
He told RAC 1 per ESPN,
"I think it gave an extra impetus to our rivalry, to the Clasico and to La Liga overall.
"I remember I said earlier this year that Madrid would notice Cristiano's departure, just as any other team would, but even so, they have enough players to be at the top and fighting for everything. It's Madrid and they have a lot of history."
Who do you think will win El Clasico?
