Lionel Messi scored the 700th goal of his career with a Panenka penalty in Barcelona’s La Liga draw with Atletico Madrid yesterday. The Spanish giants’ all-time top scorer hit the landmark goal for club and country by gently chipping the ball into the net as Jan Oblak dived the wrong way. The goal had put Barcelona 2-1 up but Atletico hit back to draw 2-2. Barca remain second, one point behind Real Madrid, who have a game in hand. Messi’s penalty was also his 630th goal in his 724th appearance for the club. The Argentina star played a part in the opener for Barcelona when his whipped corner hit Diego Costa and deflected into the back of the net.
