Lionel Messi scored his 700th career goal for both club and country but it was  not enough as Barcelona were forced to a 2-2 draw against Atletico Madrid at the Nou Camp in Tuesday’s LaLiga game.

Messi has now joined Cristiano Ronaldo as the only two active footballers who have scored 700 senior career goals for club and country.

Tuesday’s result means it is now back-to-back draws for Barcelona, following their 2-2 against Celta Vigo on Saturday which put them one point behind Real Madrid.

Barcelona on 70 points could go four points behind Madrid if the Los Merenguez beat Getafe on Friday.

Barcelona took the lead on 12 minutes following an own goal by Diego Costa as 
his attempt to intercept a corner by Messi deflected off his thigh and into his own net. 

In the 19th minute Atletico Madrid equalised through Saul Niguez from the penalty spot after Arturo Vidal tripped Yannick Carrasco inside the box.

Costa’s initial penalty kick was saved by Marc Andre Ter Stegen but a review saw that the German keeper stepped off his line which led to it to be retaken.

Five minutes into the second half Barcelona restored their lead thanks to Messi whose cheeky panenka spot kick fooled Jan Oblak, for his 700th goal.

But in the 62nd minute Atletico drew level for the second time in the game, as Niguez converted again from the penalty spot after Nelson Semedo brought down Carrasco.
