Lionel Messi scored two sublime free-kicks on his way to registering his 34th La Liga hat-trick

Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick, including two sublime free-kicks, as champions Barcelona returned to winning ways against Celta Vigo in La Liga.

Messi opened the scoring from the penalty spot after Junior Firpo’s cross struck defender Joseph Aidoo’s arm.

Lucas Olaza equalised for the visitors with an excellent free-kick, but Messi put the hosts back in front with a similar attempt four minutes later.

Messi stepped up again after half-time, before Sergio Busquets added a fourth.

Real Madrid had earlier defeated Eibar 4-0 to move first in the table, but this result sees Barcelona reclaim top spot on goal difference.

Their early hard work was undone by Aidoo’s handball, and there was nothing goalkeeper Rubén Blanco could do as Messi’s inch-perfect free-kicks either side of the interval wrestled the game away from the visitors.

The match was already over as a contest when Busquets swept home his side’s fourth with five minutes remaining.

It leaves Barcelona and Real Madrid tied on 25 points as the El Clasico showdown on 18 December draws near.
