The All-Time Top Scorers From Every Top Club Shows Lionel Messi Is The GOAT
Lionel Messi has now scored a staggering 600 goals for Barcelona and his feat looks ultra-impressive through the club's live graphic video.
Messi marked his 600th goal for Barcelona in magnificent fashion. He curled in a outrageous free-kick from 35 yards to cap off their stunning Champions League victory over Liverpool.

A few days removed from effectively booking a spot in the Champions League final, the Catalan giants have uploaded a fascinating video comparing Messi to the most prolific club-record scorers in Europe.
We're talking Sergio Aguero, Wayne Rooney, Ian Rush, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gerd Muller, among others.
Messi enters the graphic in 2004 but overtakes every single player by this season.
Check out Barcelona's video, titled: "Messi vs. other leading scorers at top European clubs."
Naturally, his superb performance sent shock wave through the football world with Jose Mourinho, Jurgen Klopp and Virgil van Dijk talking up the little genius.
"Liverpool was brave in the approach," Mourinho said. "I don't think in the past 20 years many teams in the Champions League beat Barcelona in ball possession in the Champions League.
"God of Football made it completely different. Of course (Barca) have a good team, phenomenal players, but that player is absolutely incredible."
"In these moments he is unstoppable. We couldn't defend the free kick. What a strike," Klopp told reporters following his side's 3-0 defeat.
Van Dijk is "glad" he doesn't have to play against Messi every season: "When you face Messi off at its best cannot do anything. I'm glad I'm not in Spain so I do not have to face him every season, he scored two goals, I'm very disappointed."
Messi's goal-scoring record at Barcelona is just absurd. He's scoring goals at an alarming rate and still has a few more years left (maybe more) in the tank.
How many Barcelona goals will Messi end up on? Let us know what you think.
