Lionel MESSI nets four goals for FC Barcelona in their 6-1 win against Eibar.
If it was Pablo PIATTI and Sebastian DRIUSSI on Monday, then it’s Lionel MESSI on Tuesday. Not for the first time in his career Lionel MESSI has scored four times in a single mnatch. After all, the first time he did it was in a Champions League knock out stage match in 2010 against English club Arsenal. This time though, it was against Spanish opposition, Eibar. The first was off a penalty kick with the other two coming from open play.
MESSI has now scored 11 goals in the season in only five La Liga matches, his best ever start in his La Liga career.
Argentina National Team coach Jorge SAMPAOLI was in attendance to watch both Lionel MESSI and Javier MASCHERANO (who started the match for the Catalan club). SAMPAOLI met with the two Argentina captain’s on Monday to discuss the upcoming World Cup Qualifying matches.
