Striker Lionel Messi chalked up yet another career milestone as his double ensured Barcelona defeated Celtic 2-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

With Man City drawing at Borussia Mönchengladbach, the victory not only sealed the Catalans' spot in the last 16, but also sends them through as group winners.

A century of goals in international competitions

And Messi's second goal of the night saw him reach 100 for Barça in international competitions (Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup).

The Argentina captain has netted 92 for Los Azulgranas in Europe's premier club tournament, in addition to three in the Super Cup and five in the Club World Cup.

500 up in official and friendly matches

Earlier in November, the 29-year-old brought up 500 goals for Barcelona in competitive and friendly fixtures.
