Messi reaches 700 professional goals via cheeky PK

Messi reaches 700 professional goals with stunning finish

June 30, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
'La Pulga' cemented his spot as the league's top scorer this season with a goal against Atlético.

He may not have been able to score for the past two games, but Lionel Messi sure knows how to make an impact when reaching a milestone. 

The Argentine superstar reached 700 professional goals while playing against Atlético, and even if you could believe that scoring the goal via a penalty was not something worth of praise, how Messi accomplished that feat really deserves some attention. 

With the game against Los Colchoneros level 1-1, Messi stepped up to take the spot kick, and when fans though he would drill the shot past Jan Oblak with fury, Messi took the penalty with a delicate, Panenka-style finish. Have a look at Messi's golazo from the spot (Image might be geo-restricted).

With this goal, Messi has joined quite an elite list of players. Counting the Argentine ace, there are only seven players in history that were able to score more than 700 goals for club and country.

Here's a breakdown of how many games Messi needed to hit a centennial.
