Defender Jordi Alba said there are no words to describe Messi's achievements.
"Messi decided the match," he said on the Barcelona website. "301 goals for Messi, whatever anyone says will come up short."
Midfielder Sergio Busquets added: "He improves on a daily basis, he's the best in the world."
Dani Alves admitted playing alongside Messi made it easier for the other players. "Playing next to Messi gives you a lot of calm," he said. "It makes it easier to get things done."
