Lionel Messi banged in a hat trick as Barcelona
put five past Levante to put themselves only one
point behind Real Madrid in the Liga BBVA log
table. And Mesi had a wonderful game as he
also bagged three records on the night.
Lionel Messi started the season slowly but he
has hit the ground running in 2015, banging in
14 goals this season already. In the clash
against Levante however, Lionel Messi tied with
Telmo Zarra for number of domestic hat tricks
with 31 and also tied the record for most La liga
hat tricks at 23, a record that is now shared with
Cristiano Ronaldo. As if that was not enough,
Messi’s assist for Neymar enabled the Argentine
overtake Luis Figo’s assist haul as it was his
106 Barcelona assist. It was not just a treble
of goals but it was also a treble of records for
the four time Ballon D’Or winner.
Ronaldo may have been the best footballer in
2014 but in 2015, Messi has definitely put the
Portuguese in the shadows, especially with
today’s display.
