Lionel Messi scored his 300th La Liga goal on Wednesday in spectacular fashion. 

Messi's milestone goal, a curling strike from well outside the box, came in the 25th minute against Sporting. The goal put Barcelona up 1-0. 


Moments later, after Sporting equalized, Messi scored again. His 301st La Liga goal also marked Barcelona's 10,000th goal of all–time. 


Messi has more goals than any other player in La Liga history. 

Luis Suarez wasn't left out from the scoring-fest, with a highlight-reel goal of his own. Minutes after missing a penalty kick, Suarez made up for it with a gorgeous curler, making it 3-1 Barcelona.
