Barcelona Top of La Liga Table After Messi's Hat Trick, Surpasses Cristiano Ronaldo's Record

By

After Real Madrid’s 1-0 defeat at Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, Barcelona FC moved to the top of the La Liga Table for the first time since early November today.

Capitals Fire

 

Lionel Messi recorded his 32nd … THIRTY-SECOND! … hat-trick for the club, Luis Suarez added two magnificent goals (his sixth in as many games), and Barce absolutely annihilated Rayo Vallecano 6-1.

Messi’s 32nd hat-trick (all competitions) is the most in Spanish Football History (Record previously held by Zarra: 31)

 

and his 24th Hat-Trick in La Liga play puts him ahead of some guy named Cristiano Ronaldo for the most ever…

 

In addition: Messi increased his season goal tally to 41 goals, making him the first player in Spanish football history to score 40 or more goals in six different seasons.

Translation: Good God Almighty, this dude is ridiculous.

In case you missed it, you can relive some of the ridiculous Barce goals here…

Neymar, your thoughts?
