Barcelona says a review of Cesar Rodriguez's club record goal tally has left Lionel Messi one goal shy of matching the 57-year-old record.

Barcelona investigation with La Vanguardia newspaper to verify the exact number of official goals scored by Cesar turned up 232 and not the 235 previously cited.

Messi has 231 goals and the Argentina forward can match or break the mark in Tuesday's Spanish league game against Granada.

Barcelona says the study analyzed and compared all match reports from Cesar's Barcelona career with La Vanguardia's database.

Messi, the three-time world player of the year, has 51 goals in all competitions this season.
