Messi Becomes First Spanish Player To Win 500 Games In History

Lionel Messi has become the first player in the history of Spanish football to reach 500 wins, after Barcelona romped to a 5-0 win over Leganes in the Copa del Rey.

Messi was left out of Barca’s unconvincing round of 32 victory over Ibiza last week, but Setien restored the six-time Ballon d’Or winner to his starting line up in Thursday’s last-16 clash.

Goals from Antoine Greizmann and Clement Lenglet gave the Blaugrana a comfortable half-time lead at Camp Nou, as they put the disappointment of a 2-0 La Liga defeat at Valencia on Saturday firmly behind them.
Messi made it three with a deflected effort just before the hour mark, before Arthur added some more gloss to the scoreline in the 77th minute.
