Lionel Messi is still making history…
The 29-year-old Argentine soccer star, the only futbalista in history to win the FIFA Ballon d’Or four times, scored a stunning hat-trick as his FC Barcelona team triumphed 7-0 over Celtic.
Aided ably by Neymar and Luis Suarez in a triumvirate that has been called the Holy Trinity after another stunning display, it turned out to be a record-breaking night for the Argentinian maestro.
Messi’s treble on Tuesday was his sixth in the Champions League, the most any player has scored in Europe’s elite club competition.
Luis Enrique says he believes Messi would be the best player in the world wherever he plays on the pitch after watching the Argentine score the 40th hat trick of his career in Barcelona’s big victory.
