Lionel Messi has yet again achieved another stunning career landmark, scoring  his 700th club career goal during Paris Saint-Germain’s win over Marseille.

PSG outran their opponents at the Stade Velodrome as they eased to a 3-0 win in the latest epic game of Le Classique.

Kylian Mbappe scored the first goal on 25 minutes, finishing off a rapid counter-attack and slotting  past Pau Lopez after receiving an inch-perfect pass from Messi.

Exactly four minutes later Messi’s landmark strike came. Mbappe was the provider on this occasion as his emphatic cross was met by the Argentina icon, who slotted the ball home from inside the six yard box.

Messi ran over to Mbappe with a number of their PSG teammates joining them, however, the celebrations were somewhat overshadowed by the measures stewards in the ground were required to take.

The group of stewards were seen making their way onto the pitch with riot shields to protect Messi and his PSG teammates from missiles being thrown at them by Marseille fans.

Fortunately none of the objects thrown in their direction hit the players, however, footage from the ground shows the presence of the stewards was immensely necessary.

Mbappe sealed the 3-0 win ten minutes into the second half, the French superstar combining brilliantly with Messi before volleying home with his left foot.
