Barcelona forward Lionel Messi scored his 700th career goal in Tuesday's 2-2 draw against Atletico Madrid.

He marked the milestone by converting a panenka spot kick after 50 minutes, to put his team 2-1 ahead of Diego Simeone's side.

Atletico, however, hit back to draw 2-2, putting Barca at one point behind Real Madrid at second spot.

Messi's penalty was also his 630th goal in his 724th appearance for the club.
