Lionel Messi passed 200 goals for Barcelona and went on to complete a hat-trick in their 4-0 win at Viktoria Plzen.
The milestone strike came from a penalty after the Argentine World Player of the Year was brought down by defender Marian Cisovsky, who was red-carded.
Messi, 24, top scorer in the Champions League for the past three seasons, added a second in first-half stoppage time and completed his hat-trick in injury time, taking his tally to 202 in 286 matches.
Cesc Fabregas was the other Barca scorer.
