Unbelievable feat by King Messi. We'll never see a player like that ever again. I hope I'm wrong though.

Just how good is this guy.

Lionel Messi scored his 50th career hat-trick as he inspired Barcelona's comeback to beat Sevilla 4-2.
Barca went 10 points clear at the top of the La Liga table thanks to their star man, who scored three goals of the highest standard.
First he equalised with a stunning volley from 16 yards out, then levelled again with a curling shot from the edge of the box.
Finally Messi chipped the opposition goalkeeper for his third on 85 minutes, his 36th goal in 35 games against Sevilla.
For good measure he then set up Luis Suarez for a fourth goal in injury time.

Lionel Messi stats
650 career goals
585 club goals
65 international goals
50 hat-tricks
33 goals in 32 games this season

Another hatty overnight. A free kick that he placed so well that even with the keeper on that side he couldn’t stop it and a third goal that was simply brilliant. To have the presence of mind to even consider chipping the keeper from there was impressive, to have the touch and skill to pull it off was exquisite.
