Lionel MESSI scores hattrick as Barcelona win league, SIMEONE hattrick


Lionel MESSI scored a hattrick as Barcelona were crowned La Liga champions while in Italy Giovani SIMEONE also scored three times.

It was the Lionel MESSI show for the upteenth time for Barcelona as they picked up a 4-2 win against Deportivo. All they needed was a draw to be crowned La Liga champions but they managed to get all three points. COUTINHO opened the scoring for the Catalan club and MESSI made it 2-0 with Deportivo pulling one back moments later.

The second half saw Deportivo (who absolutely needed a win otherwise they would be relegated) draw level but MESSI added a third goal and a fourth goal to complete his hattrick and give Barcelona their 25th La Liga title as they are crowned champions of Spain while going undefeated.

At the age of 30, MESSI has now won 32 trophies with his club:

La Liga (9):
2005, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2018

Copa del Rey (6):
2009, 2012, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018

Champions League (4):
2006, 2009, 2011, 2015

Spanish Super Cup (7):
2005, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2016

European Super Cup (3):
2009, 2011, 2015

Club World Cup (3):
2009, 2011, 2015

Another Argentine scored three goals in Europe as Giovanni SIMEONE scored all three goals in Fiorentina’s 3-0 win against Napoli. SIMEONE’s goals (which happened to be his first hattrick) came in the 34th, 62nd and 90th minute. That win against second place Napoli combined with Gonzalo HIGUAIN scoring the winner for Juventus on Saturday makes HIGUAIN and DYBALA’s chances of winning the league that much bigger.


  1. Two argentines in top 5 scorers for Europe’s golden shoe. Messi & icardi. Wonderful to see that. Also intriguing why a world top 5 striker ( icardi) is unable to make the final23 squad.

  2. When I said that Simeone was a great striker, laughed at me
    He deserves to be invited to the national team

  3. We are lucky to be born in Messi’s era!! He deserves a world cup… All the odds are against us…nobody expects us to win.. This is the weakest team since i started watching football.. But sometimes the best things happens unexpectedly!!

  4. Barca won the La Liga and copa due to Messi’s excellent play. Barca need to recruit more players for next summer, do hope that they will consider Arg players.

  5. I for one strongly disliked Suarez and thought his move to Barcelona would never work But I was obviously very wrong. His chemistry with Messi is uncanny to say the very least, imagine if he had a fellow Argentine playing with him day in and day out.

    Congrats on another title in less than a week, Now help beat RM and put that Bitch Christina back in her place and lets get ready for the biggest show in the world.

    • For same reasons you mentioned, Barca were not worried that Luis Suarez might not fit in their style. Hence they first tried to sign Sergio Augero but it was impossible to buy him from Dubai owned club. Also Augero was not too keen on moving to Barca as he was pretty comfortable getting check from the club. On other hand, Luis Suarez did everything to go to barca(his biting did not help his liverpool stay). That i one think Messi should have pushed Barca to do considering his power in the club. Any striker playing with Messi week in week out would have definitely helped argentina. I still believe he would have made Huigain better player than he is if they were in barca together. Di maria tried last summer, again quatari owner too arrogant to let him leave for barca by asking too much money.

      • what’s messi’s fault in all these,most of our vital players who are part of the squad for the past few years lack loyalty and possess greed,greed always brings disaster,messi from his past days learnt the lessons of loyalty.
