All 4 records broken by Messi in his latest match
We all know Lionel Messi has this ability to produce something out of nothing. He’s pretty supernatural to say the least and he has showed it (once again) against Levante in Spanish La Liga.
Here are the highlights of Messi’s stunning hat-trick
First of all, let’s talk about what Messi does so regularly that it seems all so normal. Yes, the hat-trick thing he pulls out of his hat every now and then.
Messi’s 43rd hat-trick
Where most individuals fail to score even 43 goals in a season, Lionel Messi has scored 43 hat-tricks. That is 129 goals in 43 games. And that is just as crazy as it gets. Normal for the Argentine superstar however.

More goals than Real Madrid?
This one is completely unusual. Messi has scored a goal more than Real Madrid has this season. Messi has 25, and Real Madrid altogether have 24. Amazing? Nope, just Messiesque.
AND SOCIAL MEDIA HAS REACTED TOO
Silencing the critics since 1987
"Messi can't perform without Ronaldinho."
"Messi can't perform without Xavi."
"Messi can't perform without Alves."
"Messi can't perform without Neymar."
"Messi can't perform without Iniesta."
And here he is, performing without all of them, week in – week out.#Messi pic.twitter.com/YRxtGhnKmE
