The irrepressible Lionel Messi passed 200 goals for Barcelona with a hat trick in their 4-0 Champions League win against Plzen on Tuesday night. It was his second treble in four days.
Still just 24, Messi has score 202 goals in 286 games since making his debut for Barca at 17. He already has 22 from 17 matches this season, and as Andy Mitten points out, is on course to score a ridiculous 70.
As for the 2011 Ballon d'Or, they may as well hand it to Messi right now. The Argentine is odds-on favorite to pick up the award for a third year running, a feat not achieved since Michel Platini's reign in the 1980s.
Here are his 202 Barca goals.
