Messi scores 300th goals at Camp Nou in Eibar whipping, eyes Pichichi title


Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi scored 4 goals in his club’s 6-1 victory over Eibar to bring his Camp Nou tally to 300 goals in all competitions.

The Argentine International reached the milestone and kept the Catalan side perfect during the current La Liga season.

The 30-year-old converted a penalty 20 minutes into the game to take his 2017 tally to 40 goals.

Messi then scored twice in quick succession in the second half to complete a hat-trick – his second of the season after putting three past Espanyol.

He was not done there, as he added his fourth three minutes from the end to complete the six-goal hammering.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has scored on eight of his last 12 shots in Spanish topflight.

With nine goals already in the league, Messi is already looking a decent bet for the Pichichi title.
