The Great Lionel Messi recorded a hat trick for the 50th time this past weekend.
Messi provided yet more evidence of his legendary status Saturday when he registered his 50th career hat-trick in a comeback 4-2 win against Sevilla.
Sevilla who are notorious for being difficult to beat at home — having lost only once previously in La Liga this campaign at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium — provided Barcelona with the perfect start in a pivotal week on the road.
“We went through a spell where, to be honest, we did not play our best football so that made it much harder for us to score. You have different moments over a season and we can’t always play at the highest level. But when we manage to get the play to flow, things always happen for us.”
