Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi can take his goal tally for the Catalan club to an incredible 600 by netting a hat-trick against Real Sociedad this weekend, according to Sport.
The Argentine attacker has been at Camp Nou his entire career and is regarded as one of the best players of all time due to his exceptional feats for the Balugrana.
Messi powered Barcelona through to the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday night, scoring twice as the La Liga outfit beat Manchester United 3-0 at Camp Nou.
The Catalan giants and their South American star will now face Liverpool in the next stages.
Messi is already Barcelona’s all-time top scorer with 597 strikes from 679 games and has set some exceptional personal records through his career.
The next landmark for the Argentina international is 600 goals, with the Real Sociedad defence all that stands in his way.
With Messi pushing Barcelona towards the La Liga title and the top scorer in both the domestic top flight and the Champions League, he is surely favourite to win the Ballon d’Or this year.
The Blaugrana face Sociedad on Saturday night, before taking on Alaves on Tuesday night.
