Argentinian soccer idol, Lionel Messi’s hat-trick gave Barcelona a 3-1 victory over Leganes in matchday 31 of La Liga at Camp Nou, Saturday.
The crafty forward rushed in two Lionel Messi goals within five minutes to make the difference at half-time as Barcelona led Leganes 2-0. With the brace, the Argentine had equaled Mohamed Salah’s league tally.
As the second half resumed, Leganes hit the field of play smoking as Nabil El Zhar reduced the deficit with a well taken right-footed effort from the centre of the box to the bottom left corner.
Messi added Barcelona’s third for his 29th goal of the season to send FC Barcelona 12 points clear at the top of the La Liga table
