It Would Be Nice To Hit 500 Goals Against Real Madrid On Saturday El-Classico – Messi



The Argentina international is on 499 senior career goals and is keen to reach a milestone against his teams rivals when the two sides clash on Saturday evening.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi says it would be a special moment to score his 500th career goal in Saturday’s Clasico at Camp Nou.

The 28-year-old struck his 50th international goal from the penalty spot in Argentina’s 2-0 World Cup qualifying victory over Bolivia on Tuesday.

That strike put Messi on 499 in his senior career and the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has set his sights on hitting his next milestone against fierce rivals Real Madrid.

“It would be a nice moment to reach that figure against Real Madrid. It would be nice to win to stretch our advantage,” he told reporters.
