Lionel Messi netted his 50th career hat-trick on Saturday against Sevilla as Barcelona twice came from behind to win 4-2 at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan.

The Barcelona captain volleyed home a sensational first goal with his left foot, stuck his second in the top corner with his right and then showed great composure to dink home his third late on.

It was an incredible goalscoring performance from the GOAT who even had time to set up Luis Suarez for Barcelona’s fourth goal in stoppage time.

The victory sends Barcelona 10 points clear at the top, as Atletico Madrid are not in action until Sunday.

Meanwhile, Messi now has 25 goals in 23 La Liga outings this season and 36 goals in 35 appearances against Sevilla.
