Messi makes history in Barcelona’s 4-2 win over Sevilla

Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, on Saturday made history in his side’s 4-2 win over Sevilla in the La Liga encounter at the Estadio Ramon Stadium.

Three goals from Lionel Messi and a goal from Luis Suarez gave Barcelona all three points against Sevilla.

However, a goal from Jesus Navas and Gabriel Mercado was not enough to give the hosts a point against the Catalan club.

According to Barcablaugranes, Messi’s hat-trick against Sevilla means the Argentine captain has now scored 50 hat-tricks in his career for club (44) and country (6).

The result has seen Barcelona move 10 points clear ahead of second-placed, Atletico Madrid at the top of the La Liga table.
