The three goals against Arsenal on Tuesday took FC Barcelona past the 900 goal mark in official international games. Messi’s first made it 900 exactly and Xavi and Messi’s second made it 902 –and counting!
100 goals in less than four and a half years
When was the 800th goal scored? On December 14th 2006 – four years and four months ago, in
the semi final of the World Club Cup against Amèrica de Mexico, when Rafa Marquez got the second in
the 4-0 win.
Tuesday’s game was a great occasion at the Nou Camp and it also marked a historic record for
the club, as they passed the 900 goals mark in international football, a figure reached in just 467
games, during which 479 were conceded.
