Lionel Messi is three goals away from Telmo Zarra’s La Liga record of 251 goals having scored 249 goals in 284 games since making his debut almost ten years ago on October 16, 2004 against Espanyol having joined Barcelona from Newell’s Old Boys in 2000.

Barcelona host newly promoted Eibar at the Nou Camp after the international break before the first El Clasico of the season on October 25, and the Argentine forward has every chance to break Zarra’s record in the coming two matches.

The Spanish Football Association president Javier Tebas spoke to journalists about the four-time Ballon d’Or winner receiving tribute if he were to break the record at the home of the rivals. He said, “It will be an important historic moment. Messi will deserve some form of tribute and if he surpasses the record of Zarra, we should pause to reflect on what will be such a historic moment.”

Lionel Messi has scored four goals in the last matches for Barcelona games and if he were to score a hat-trick against Eibar, the LFP could honour him with an award before the El Clasico at the Bernabéu.

Tebas also considered the possibility of Messi breaking the record on the night when Luis Suarez will make his return from his four-month ban from professional football against Real Madrid.

He questioned the journalists when probed, “Why can’t we pay tribute to Messi at the Bernabéu?”

“I am thinking of ideas but the homage has to be a tribute that lasts forever.”

Messi is the all time leading scorer in El Clasico’s with 21 goals against Real Madrid and has scored six goals in seven Liga appearances for Barcelona this season.
