Lionel Messi marked his 700th Barcelona appearance in style as he set a new Champions League milestone in netting against Borussia Dortmund.
Dortmund became the 34th side to concede in the competition against the Argentine, a mark which the sees him surpass Raul and Cristiano Ronaldo
The Argentine started against the Bundesliga side
on Wednesday in a landmark game that brought up
his seventh century as a Blaugrana player.
And he celebrated in trademark style as the visitors
were made to suffer at Camp Nou.
Barca needed 29 minutes to get off the mark, Messi playing in Luis Suarez to convert past Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki.
Four minutes later the Uruguayan returned the favour, finding Messi in space to allow the Argentine to net his second of the current Champions League campaign.
Messi failed to hit the net in Barca’s first game against Dortmund in September, having come off the bench as a second-half substitute in a game that ultimately finished 0-0.
But he made up for that oversight at Camp Nou,
marking yet another Champions League best in the process.
Dortmund became Messi’s 34th victim in the competition on Wednesday, a tally that will be dufficult for other
player in history to match.
