Lionel Messi is again the protagonist this weekend with Barcelona, although the Catalan club lost 3-4 with Real Betis on the 12th of the Spanish League. The Argentine scored a double and reached the 566 goal which envied the Barca uniform, beating German Gerd Müller (565 with Bayern Munich) as the second player with more scores for the same club. Thus, & # 39; Flea & # 39; now with the record of Pele Brasil, who in his career with Santos got 643 goals for & # 39; peixe & # 39 ;. With 31 years, & # 39; 10 & # 39; Barca's dream of overtaking & # 39; O Rei & # 39;
It won't be easy for & # 39; Flea & # 39; to reach Pelé, because he still has 77 points left to match the mark. However, Messi is still valid and still fundamental in the Barcelona campaign, so it is not crazy to think that he can score more goals, because his average and talent cannot be denied.
Messi has surpassed the stratosphere record of & # 39; torpedo & # 39; Müller: in a year, 2012, he scored 91 goals which surpassed 85 Germany in 1972. Thus, Germany was already familiar with Argentina breaking the numbers.
The only player in the activity that approached him in numbers to Messi was, if not, Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored 450 goals for Real Madrid; but the Portuguese did not play on the merengue team – he is now at Juventus – and it was impossible for him to approach him.
Can Messi break Pele's record?
