Lionel Messi scored his first hat-trick of the season and made history as he fired Barcelona to a resounding 5-1 Primera Division win at home to Sevilla.

The Argentinian opened the scoring with a sensational free-kick to draw level with former Athletic Bilbao forward Telmo Zarra as the Primera Division's all-time top scorer but his strike was cancelled out by Jordi Alba's own goal at the start of the second half.

Neymar headed Barca back in front moments later, then Ivan Rakitic extended Barca's lead before Messi broke the La Liga all-time scoring record after an awesome combination with Neymar, and then the Argentinian struck again to complete his treble and score his 253rd league strike.
