Lionel Messi scored his 700th career goal with a Panenka penalty in Barcelona’s La Liga draw with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

The encounter ended 2-2 in the first half after Messi’s corner hit Diego Costa and deflected into the back of the net before an equaliser came from Saul Niguez from the spot-kick.

Lionel Messi’s 50th minutes cheeky Panenka penalty put the Spanish ‘Giant’ ahead of Athletico Madrid, making his 700th career goal until Niguez again leveled the scoreline from a second penalty kick, 2-2 was the final score.

Messi’s penalty was also his 630th goal in his 724th appearance for Barcelona.

Barcelona remain second on the league table with 70 points, one point behind Real Madrid, who have an outstanding game to play.

A win on Thursday for Real Madrid would see Zidane’s side go four points up.
