Lionel Messi may be having an off season by his standards, having suffered from injury and frequent bouts of sickness, but he's still scoring at a prolific rate.

In fact, FC Barcelona have just congratulated him on reaching 40 goals for his fifth consecutive season.   

Forty goals. Five seasons in a row. Not too shabby, Lionel.
