Messi equals Pele’s record as Valencia hold Barcelona


Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has equalled Pele’s record of 643 goals for a single club after in their 2-2 draw with Valencia on Saturday.

Messi netted a milestone goal with a diving header just before half-time, to cancel out Mouctar Diakhaby’s 29th-minute opener.

Barcelona then went ahead through Ronald Araujo but Maxi Gomez earned Valencia a point.

Messi went close with several late efforts but Ronald Koeman’s side failed to find a winner and his star player had to settle for matching rather than surpassing Pele’s Santos mark for now.

Barcelona are languishing fifth in the top-flight table but could yet be overhauled by sixth-placed Sevilla who have two games in hand on the Catalan giants.
