Lionel Messi Levels Gerd Mueller’s RecordLionel Messi Levels Gerd Mueller’s Record

Barcelona’s Lionel Messi netted his 525th goal for the club, during the La Liga match against Villareal on December 10, equaling former Bayern Munich forward Gerd Mueller’s record of scoring most goals for one club.

A poor back pass from Victor Ruiz saw the ball go to Barca’s Sergio Busquets, who played in Messi for the club record and his 14th league goal this season, Rediff.com reported.

Earlier, Luis Suarez scored the opener, rounding goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo to complete a move of quick passes by Messi, Jordi Alba and substitute Paco Alcacer.

In 2012, Messi had surpassed Mueller for most goals in a calendar year. Breaking a 40-year record, Messi had netted 86 goals back then.
