Messi's goal tally for Barca is the most ever by a player for one club, after he passed Pele's record of 643 for Santos last season.
He is comfortably LaLiga's record goalscorer with 474 and is also second all-time in the Champions League with 120 to his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo's 134.
Last season's 30 goals won him an eighth Pichichi trophy, awarded to LaLiga's top scorer, while he has led the Champions League goal charts six times including 2014-15 when he shared the honour with Ronaldo and Neymar.
He has scored Champions League goals in 16 seasons, matching Ryan Giggs' record, and unlike the former Manchester United man he has done so in consecutive years dating back to 2005-06.
Messi's 2011-12 season, when he scored 73 times in 60 games for Barca in all competitions including a league half-century, remains an astonishing high watermark.
Messi won 34 major trophies with Barca, when including domestic and European super cups and the Club World Cup in that definition.
They won LaLiga in 10 of his 17 seasons, with seven Copa del Rey triumphs and four domestic doubles along the way. Seven Supercopa wins boost Messi's total to 24 honours in Spain.
He added another 10 continental or inter-continental successes, with Barca winning the Champions League in 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2015 and adding both the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup after the latter three of those.
HAT-TRICKS & beyond
Messi scored 48 hat-tricks for Barca, including 36 in LaLiga, with another six for Argentina taking him through the half-century mark for his career as a whole.
He scored four goals on six separate occasions – in league games with Valencia, Espanyol, Osasuna and twice against Eibar plus a Champions League win over Arsenal in 2010.
He also recorded one five-goal haul in Europe, against Bayer Leverkusen in the last 16 second leg in 2012 as Barca won 7-1 and 10-2 on aggregate.
The all-time leading winner of the Ballon d'Or, Messi also has a number of individual accolades to his name. Here is a look at a few of them:
Ballon d'Or: 6 (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2019)
European Golden Shoe (highest goalscorer in Europe in a league season): 6.
