Barcelona vs. Celta Vigo - Football Match Report

Barcelona 4-1 Celta Vigo: Lionel Messi hits hat-trick as champions reclaim top spot

Barcelona fans are beginning to suspect trouble within the club, as a recently-released video seems to show that Lionel Messi snubbed Ousmane Dembele altogether, while greeting his teammates in the dressing room after a recent Champions League game.

Lionel Messi scored two exquisite free kicks as he netted his first hat-trick of the season in a 4-1 win over Celta Vigo on Saturday which took Barcelona back to the top of La Liga after a hard week.

The hat trick marks Messi's 34th of his La Liga career (459 games), tying Cristiano Ronaldo's record.

"It's clear that when it's so close we have the advantage of having the best player in the world and the best free-kick taker in the world (Messi),” said Busquets". "He's been improving and that's an advantage, I hope he keeps scoring them".

It had been a torrid week for the Blaugrana, who lost 3-1 at Levante before being held to a goalless draw by Slavia Prague, but Messi scored a penalty and two superb free-kicks as his side returned to the top of LaLiga.

If anything, the yellow card he earned and subsequent goal from the visitors served as motivation for Messi, because magic from Barcelona's No. 10 was on its way.

"Free kicks are something he has mastered down to an art". Both free kicks were fired over the wall and curled into the top corner.

Messi has scored eight goals in his seven league appearances this year and aims to win the Champions League for the first time since 2015.

Messi stepped up again after half-time, before Sergio Busquets added a fourth.

Barca are joint log leaders with rivals Real Madrid who also recorded massive win away from home at Eibar earlier on Saturday.
