Lionel Messi could have scored his 300th career league goal Sunday, but he decided to help out his teammate instead.

Barcelona made easy work of Celta Vigo in a 6-1 win at Camp Nou, and Barca’s three stars — Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez — all got on the score sheet.

Suarez finished with a hat trick thanks to Messi, who passed it to Suarez on a sneaky trick shot instead of going for a record goal.

We’re guessing Messi won’t have to wait too long for goal No. 300, so it was nice to see him give his teammate a shot at a memorable day on the pitch.
