Barcelona Star Leo Messi Has eyes on two Pele records both for club and country

Leo Messi is currently chasing two huge records set by Pele. Curiously, each of them could be broken already this season.

Most goals for a single club

Leo needs just NINE goals for Barcelona to set a new record for the most goals scored for a single club.

Messi currently has 635 goals for Barca while the Brazilian great managed 643 goals for Santos.

A couple of braces or hat-tricks against Getafe, Ferencvaros, Real Madrid and Juventus could see him beating Pele already this month.

Most goals for the South American team

Leo needs EIGHT goals for Argentina to become the leading scorer among the South American nations.

He is already his side's leading scorer with 70 goals, just 7 goals short of Pele's record for Brazil.

The Albiceleste have 4 World Cup qualifiers scheduled in 2020: against Ecuador and Bolivia in October and against Paraguay and Peru in November.
