Messi closes on Di Stefano record

Lionel Messi is just one goal behind Alfredo Di Stefano in the Clasico top scorers list after his double last night.

The Argentine struck a half volley and a spectacular free kick in the 2-2 draw at Camp Nou, bringing his goal tally in the famous fixture up to 17, just one less than compatriot and Real Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano.

The brace also takes him above another Merengues hero, Raul, who hit 15 in total against Barca.

Remarkably Messi has now scored 100 La Liga goals at Camp Nou. In 2012 alone he has managed 65 goals and 20 assists.
