Messi Hits Another Hat Trick In Barca 5-1 Win

–402 goals and still counting

Lionel Messi scored yet another hat-trick and surpassed 400 club goals as Barcelona came from behind to win the Catalan derby 5-1 against Espanyol in La Liga on Sunday.

The Argentine, who holds the La Liga and Champions League scoring records, produced a now familiar devastating performance to take his record to 402 goals for Barca in all competitions, including 28 in friendlies.

He produced his tour de force, predictably, just a day after Cristiano Ronaldo, his rival for title of world’s best player, scored a La Liga record 23rd hat-trick against Celta Vigo for Real Madrid.

Messi may have two fewer La Liga hat-tricks than the Portuguese but he has 29 to Ronaldo’s 27 in official matches for their Spanish clubs.
