Lionel Messi made history last week with his 644th goal for Barcelona FC.
To mark the moment, Budweiser created a custom bottle for each of Messi’s 644 goals — and sent them to the 160 goalkeepers Messi scored the goals against including Juventus’ Gianluigi Buffon.
Messi’s tally moved him past Pelé on all-time list for most goals with a club.
“In this game, no goal is easy,” Messi says in an ad posted by Budweiser.
“In this game, no goal is easy”
Which is why we’ve created a custom bottle for all 644 goals Leo Messi scored. Yes, that’s 644 unique bottles.

The bottles display the goal number and a logo of Messi from behind in a classic goal celebration pose.
