Messi scores fourth Champions League hatrick

Last night Lionel Messi netted a hatrick for Barcelona in their game against Ajax. It secured another record of being the only man to score four hatricks in the Champions League.

On Tuesday evening Cristiano Ronaldo made headlines around the world by scoring a hatrick for Real Madrid in their first Champion League match of the 2013/14 season. Last night Lionel Messi matched the feat and set a record in the process.

In Barcelona's 4 - 0 demolition of Ajax at the Nou Camp, Lionel  scored the first two and final goals. Gerard Pique quipped in with a header from a subliminal Neymar cross.

The hatrick last night means that Lionel Messi is the only man to score four hatricks in the Champions League. Also, he drew closer to Raul's goal-scoring record in the competition - trailing the Spaniard by just nine goals now.

It was the first time in their entire history that Barcelona had played Ajax competitively - and it was a night the Dutch club will try to forget.
