After a bad start to the game, Lionel Messi saved Barca with a penalty (23rd) and two direct free kicks (45th + 1, 48th). Sergio Busquets scored the last goal for Barcelona (85th), the only goal of Vigo was scored by Lucas Olaza (42).
With a new performance from Messi, it becomes complicated to find the words. With his 34th hat-trick in the Liga, the Argentinean equals his best opponent, Cristiano Ronaldo. We continue with some figures to talk about the phenomenon again and again. In 2019, the striker scored no less than 8 free kicks. This brings his total since the beginning of his career to 52.
