Lionel MESSI scored a hat trick while also having two assists and put up a man of the match performance in FC Barcelona’s 5-0 win against Levante.
The fifth best player in the world had a dazzling run around the Levante back line before sending in what looked like a no look cross to Luis SUAREZ who made it 1-0 for Barcelona. Just minutes later, MESSI received a pass from Sergio BUSQUETS and the Argentina man made it 2-0, his first of three goals.
The second half started off with a MESSI goal, a first touch finish made wit 3-0 just two minutes into the half. MESSI’s third came after a Luis SUAREZ nutmeg who passed it to VIDAL who slotted it to MESSI and Lionel tapped the ball in for his third.
Before the end of the match, MESSI would get his second assist on a Gerard PIQUE goal, meaning he had a hand in all five of Barcelona’s goals.
He is now the first player to score 50 goals in 2018 across all competitions.
