It took Messi 797 games to reach 50 hat-tricks while Cristiano Ronaldo reached his 50th in March previous year.

La Liga leaders Barca had scored once in their last two games before putting four past Sevilla, and Pique praised their return to form.

Madrid coach Solari said it was "curious" that Barca played Sevilla on Saturday while his side had to wait until Sunday to play Levante, and also pointed out that Barca had had an extra day off before the Copa del Rey semifinal first leg.

But with 67 minutes gone Messi was on target again, curling the ball home from the edge of the box to make it 2-2, and he was soon close to a hat-trick when keeper Tomas Vaclik diverted his effort over the bar.

The treble took Messi's league-leading tally to 25 goals in as many rounds.

Messi cancelled out Navas' 22nd-minute opener four minutes later when he blasted an exquisite volley from an Ivan Rakitic cross into the top corner.

"You have different moments over a season, and we can't always play at the highest level".

Likening Messi's epic statistics to some Premier League clubs, Messi has scored 32 league hat-tricks and in that time Arsenal as a club have only amassed 30 hat-tricks, while Liverpool (26), Manchester United (22) and Chelsea (21) fall short of Messi's stats, so that just shows the sensational scoring ability of the Argentinean legend.

It says: " If they ask you about me, tell them: 'She was the only person that loved me with honesty, and I broke her '". She was very much aware of how devastated Khloé was by Tristan's [last] betrayal , ' explained the insider.

"Today, we were ourselves again and we produced a great performance", Messi told reporters.

The captain lead and had one of his best matches of the season.

"We went through a spell where, to be honest, we did not play our best football so that made it much harder for us to score".

"This doesn't mean the league is ours yet" Messi said. "We don't throw any competition".

"We will have three really tough games in seven days, so we'll have to think about rotating".

Jesus Navas and Gabriel Mercado had put Pablo Machin's side in the ascendancy, but a fourth game without a win has dealt serious damage to their UEFA Champions League ambitions.

"But we will go out to win and believe we can". "The game turned against us but we knew how to pull it out". "We're going to try and win everything".
