Lionel Messi matches Pele’s record, but Valencia’s Barcelona

Although Lionel Messi equaled Pele’s record of 643 goals for a club, Barcelona still drew 2-2 in La Liga with Valencia at Nou Camp.

Maxi Gomez went on to equalize for Valencia, condemning Barcelona in the seventh game without winning 13 league encounters.

Before Messi equalized, Moറ്റർtar Djakobi put Valencia ahead – home shortly after the penalty was missed.

Barcelona won just hours before Ronald Aurozo’s acrobatic scissors-kick.

But Ronald Koemann could not hold his own, and slipping into another disappointing result further frustrated him from behind successive victories.

Barcelona are fifth in the top-flight table, but sixth-placed Sevilla have two games left for the Catalan giants.

Messi has now matched Pele’s 643 goals scored by the Brazilian in 19 seasons for Santos.

Argentine forward Messi’s best performance of Barcelona’s career has surpassed the club’s draw, but Bose Koman is still under intense pressure in this role.

Djokovic capitalized on a formidable Barcelona lead Valencia from the start to advance to a corner.

In the disappointing first half, the hosts could not get back into the match, only to have a golden opportunity to equalize through a penalty.

The loss of the penalty was the last thing on Messi’s mind, especially in Pele’s view.

But he was able to overcome his strong lines in Argentina and converted a deviant cross by Jordi Alba when the ball remained active after the sport kick.

Barcelona looked to play for more than half an hour when Arroyo Acrobatics won 2-1.

But Gomez popped in to equalize, creating more misery in Barcelona and the Commonwealth – with Messi’s latest landmark shining on the day.
