BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Lionel Messi has equaled the Spanish league's all-time scoring record with 251 goals after scoring for Barcelona against Sevilla on Saturday.

Messi curled home an elegant free kick to give Barcelona a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute at Camp Nou Stadium.

Messi's latest scoring feat comes after he equaled Raul Gonzalez as the Champions League all-time scorer with 71 goals earlier this month.
