VIDEO: Lionel Messi Becomes Barcelona's All-Time Leading Goal-Scorer

Lionel Messi has scored more goals for Barcelona than any other player to ever play for the club. Every one has scored fewer than him. Every. Single. One.

Messi scored in the first half of Barcelona's match against Granada to tie César Rodríguez atop the club's all-time goal-scoring list with 232 goals, but he wasn't done. Messi came back with another in the second half to give his team the lead and make him the greatest goal-scorer in the history of the club at just 24 years old.

Great goals by Messi litter the Internet and nobody really questions his brilliance. He goes out every match and puts on a show with a consistency rarely seen. He's playing at the same time as Cristiano Ronaldo, who will go down as one of the greatest players to ever play the sport, and yet there is no debate as to who the best player in the world is. That's probably because he is the all-time leading goalscorer at Barcelona at just 24 years old.

There is reality, there is make believe, and there is Lionel Messi.
