Lionel Messi is now the all-time top-scoring player in Liga history for goals at home.
The Argentine overtook Athletic legend Telmo Zarra’s tally of 179 with a strike against Deportivo as Barcelona ran out 4-0 winners on Saturday.
Running onto Neymar’s clever through-ball into the area, Messi powered the ball beyond German Lux in the Deportivo goal to make La Liga history.
Cristiano Ronaldo is fourth on the list with 150 goals, behind Real Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano’s tally of 151.
Messi is already the top scorer and assist provider in Liga history and now adds yet another record to the long list of achievements during his career.
