It Took Lionel Messi Under An Hour To Score This Superb Hat Trick Today

Lionel Messi is at it again, guys.

The Argentinian international scored three absolutely beautiful goals against Granada in very quick succession on Saturday for a hat trick natural as they come. Even better, the most eloquent man in sports, Ray Hudson was their to narrate all three of them.

Here’s La Pulga’s first in just the 7th minute.

Messi’s second came on a clean-up job after a Suarez cross looped in front of Granada’s keeper. Magisterial!

And the one that made them take the hats off came from a Neymar Jr. rebound that careened right to Leo’s feet off the post.

Cue the MESSI, MESSI, MESSI chants! His hatter helped Barça cruise to a 4-0 victory.

Well done, sir. Well done indeed.
