Barcelona’s four-match winless run on the road in LaLiga is over after Lionel Messi’s record-setting goal helped them to an easy victory.
Having drawn level with Pele’s haul of 643 goals for Santos with a header in a 2-2 draw with Valencia on Saturday, Messi made it 644 in Barca colours across all competitions on Tuesday.
Having created Clement Lenglet’s opener before playing a key part in Martin Braithwaite making it 2-0 before the interval, Messi swept home from Pedri’s clever flick in the 65th minute.
It rounded off a fine performance from Ronald Koeman’s side, who ended their winless run in LaLiga away games at the fifth time of asking.
