Barcelona’s Leo Messi scored his 400th career goal in Barcelona’s rout of Granada on Saturday evening and at the age of 27, he has plenty more years ahead of him as he continues to solidify his legacy.

Infostrada Sports has further broken down the Messi 400; 331 left foot, 52 right foot, 15 headers, 1 body, 1 hand.

The four-time Ballon d’Or winner is also just four goals away from tying the legendary Telmo Zarra’s all-time La Liga goal-scoring record of 251, a record that has been held by the Athletic Club Bilbao star for 59 years (1955).

Messi scored his first professional goal against Albacete Balompié on 1 May 2005 at 17 years, ten months and seven days old, becoming the youngest to ever score in a La Liga game for Barcelona.
