In a match that featured three penalties, Messi scored one of those to make it 700 career goals, of which 630  have been scored in Barca’s shirt.

Barcelona took the lead on 11 minutes through an own goal scored by Diego Costa who inadvertently diverted Lionel Messi’s corner kick into his own net.

Atletico Madrid equalized eight minutes later via the first penalty kick earned when Yannick Carrasco was brought down by Arturo Vidal.
