Hat-Trick Heroes: Leo Messi Vs Almeria
Leo Messi netted a stunning hat-trick as FC Barcelona demolished Almeria 8-0 at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos back in 2010. The Argentinian played a wonderful one-two on the edge of the area before unleashing an unstoppable low effort past the outstretched Diego Alves to net his first of the match. The onslaught continued when Messi scored his second and 100th La Liga goal, following excellent wide-play by Pedro. He completed his hat-trick when David Villa's 20-yard drive was parried by Alves straight into the path of Messi, who tapped the ball into the empty net.
