Messi On Standing Ovation From Betis Crowd: It's Never Happened To Me

FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi notched his 51st career hat-trick in a win against Real Betis Sunday at Seville Spain

Suarez, who scored Barca's third goal with an outstanding solo run and finish, was hurt towards the end of the victory, in which Lionel Messi scored a glorious hat-trick.

Barcelona has another La Liga matchup against Espanyol at 11:15 a.m. Saturday, March 30 at Camp Nou in Barcelona. The Argentinian lined up a free kick from about 25 yards out.

Messi added a second goal in stoppage time of the first half, doubling Barcelona's lead ahead of the break.

But Messi saved his best for late after substitute Loren Moron had pulled one back for the hosts. His shot grazed the underside of the bar before going in, triggering the outburst of praise from Betis fans.

Inaki Williams had given Athletic the lead in that game with little over a quarter of an hour to play in Bilbao.

"Even though the opposition concedes goals to Messi they can still enjoy this unbelievable era which he has created, they enjoy it too and today they recognized that", said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde, according to Reuters.

"We played against a team that treats the ball well", Messi added. "Worse things have happened". "Tactically it was flawless and we did not suffer, just the opposite".

Barca, via their official Twitter page, have confirmed that the Uruguay worldwide will undergo tests on Monday to determine the "exact extent of the injury".

The hat-trick saw Messi score his 27th, 28th and 29th goals for Barca this season to take his haul of combined assists and goals to a stunning 60 in total. "We did not want them to take control, in the first game they passed us, when they scored four goals".
