Lionel Messi fans adamant Barcelona star is better than Cristiano Ronaldo after hat-trick


LIONEL MESSI has started yet another debate with Cristiano Ronaldo after sealing a stunning hat-trick for Barcelona against Real Betis.

The Argentine couldn’t help but admit his admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo during last week’s Champions League action.

The Juventus ace struck a sensational hat-trick to dump Atletico Madrid out of the Champions League.

But in yet another case of ‘anything you can do, I can do better’, Lionel Messi continues to show his sheer brilliance.

The star scored a break taking hat-trick at Real Betis on Sunday night as Barcelona went ten points clear at the La Liga summit.

The first came from a free-kick when he fired the ball into the top left-hand corner.

He doubled his tally in the first half when he collected Luis Suarez’s back heel before finishing confidently.

The Uruguayan then got in on the act with a superb solo goal himself.

Real Betis pulled one back but the man of the moment, Messi then killed the game off in style to seal his hat-trick.
