Last week Lionel Messi broke a long standing record, that had previously belonged to Pele since 1974, by scoring against Valladolid.

The six time Ballon d'Or winner brought up his team's third goal of the night but more importantly it was Messi's 644th for Barcelona, taking him above Brazilian legend Pele's 643 strikes for Santos as the most scored for a single club.

That meant some keepers were having a very merry Christmas, none more so than Diego Alves, who earned himself 21 beers over the years.

At least Alvez will be able to drown his sorrows looking at that list, some players were very grateful to have received their commemorative drinks.

Gianluigi Buffon, Jan Oblak and Tomas Vaclik all took to Twitter to send a message to the 33-year-old forward.

Speaking recently, Oblak explained what it's like facing the Argentina forward, "He watches my legs," Oblak told Sky Sports as he gave insight into what makes Messi stand out.

"If I make one step, he will see it and shoot to the other side. This is why he is the best. This is why he is so difficult. He does not show it but he is always looking. He is always watching you. His eyes are on the ball but he sees you.

"He sees everything, I think. He has scored many goals against me. Too many! But he is a great player, an amazing player, the best player.

"There are many times that he scores a goal and you have this feeling that you cannot understand how he has scored so easily.

"You are not even close. Sometimes it feels like he has just passed the ball into the goal, it is not even a shot."

Messi could soon have a new set of goalkeepers to score against, with rumours still around that he will leave Barcelona in the summer.
