Lionel Messi: The goal that started the Barcelona legend

Ten years on, that same man has scored 402 more goals for the Spanish club, becoming the record scorer in their illustrious 115-year history. Few inside the Nou Camp on 1 May 2005 – when Barcelona beat Albacete 2-0 – would have realised they were seeing the beginning of a legend.

But that is what Lionel Messi, now 27, has become. Here BBC Sport takes a statistical look at the Argentine’s record-breaking scoring feats since that debut goal.
