Lionel Messi’s hat-trick at Sevilla was the 50th of his career.

Lionel Messi scored the 50th hat-trick of his career to help Barcelona twice recover from a goal down and win 4-2 at Sevilla on Saturday.

Messi’s first came from a superb volley before he curled home from the edge of the area and then clipped home a neat finish to complete his treble.

It was the 32nd hat-trick of Messi’s La Liga career, while he has notched eight in the Champions League, three in the Copa del Rey, one in the Spanish Super Cup and six in international competition with Argentina.

He is second in the all-time La Liga list behind former Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, who has 34, but the two are tied on 44 club hat-tricks in all competitions.

That makes them the joint holders of the all-time record for the most hat-tricks scored for a club in Spain.
