Messi equals Ronaldo's record for LaLiga hat-tricks

  • Griezmann must adapt to Barcelona's style of play says Valverde. GOAL

Real Madrid's convincing 4-0 win at Eibar earlier on Saturday had kept up the pressure.

A soft-looking award of a penalty gifted Messi the opportunity to put Barca in front from the spot on 23 minutes before Celta's Lucas Olaza silenced the stadium three minutes before the break with a brilliant free-kick.

Not to be outdone, Messi restored Barcelona's lead with a glorious strike after Fran Beltran fouled Arthur, the club's all-time leading scorer curling a picture-book goal into the top corner from 25 yards.

Both Blaugrana talisman Messi and Ronaldo have now netted 34 trebles in Spain's top tier, although the former Real Madrid forward, having previously played for Sporting CP and Manchester United before joining Juventus past year, had a shorter stay in the division.

Antoine Griezmann, who struggled again to make an impact, saw a shot well saved by Celta keeper Ruben Blanco as Barca, now with Sergio Busquets on the pitch following Nelson Semedo's injury midway through the first half, giving Ernesto Valverde's side much more control of the ball.

"With Messi anything is possible", he said. Because of this, the opponent can't commit fouls on the edge of their own box.

Messi gives set-piece masterclass as Barca outclass Celta
When teams concede free kicks on the edge of their own box they feel nearly as unsafe as penalties with Messi standing over them. Barcelona's talisman gave the ball away in midfield and conceded a foul on the edge of his own box as he tried to win it back.

"Messi, apart from scoring goals, has a commitment to the game".

Barcelona had suffered an unexpected 3-1 defeat at Levante last weekend, and were then held to a goalless home draw by Slavia Prague in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

"We had a damaging defeat the other day and we needed a win tonight. Having him around gives us a real boost".

The resulting kick was converted by Lionel Messi as Barcelona won comfortably at Camp Nou.

One goal in six LaLiga matches is a poor return from Griezmann, who missed a gilt-edged chance and offered very little throughout the game.
