Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, is closing in on the late Argentina legend, Diego Maradona’s record of 59 career freekicks after scoring in a brace in his side’s LaLiga 3-2 win over Valencia on Sunday.

Messi’s freekick against Valencia over the weekend was his 50th in a Barcelona shirt.

The Argentina captain found the net against Jasper Cillessen in the second half at Mestalla.

In doing so, Messi brought his total freekick tally to 56, with club and country.

That’s only three off Maradona’s Argentina record of 59 career freekicks.

Messi has already overtaken Manuel Pelegrina’s 45 and Daniel Passarella’s 43 in terms of countrymen’s freekick totals.

Messi will now hope to continue his impressive display when Barcelona tackle Atletico Madrid on May 8.
