Messi scores on 700th Barcelona appearance to help beat Dortmund

Lionel Messi scored on his 700th Barcelona appearance as they reached the knockout stages of the Champions League with a win over Borussia Dortmund.

The Argentine, who has now scored 114 goals in the competition, was the catalyst for Barcelona’s best work throughout.

Messi doubled the hosts’ lead four minutes later, registering his 613th goal for the club, with a left-foot effort from eight yards.
