That hat-trick was all kinds of incredible. 158 in 154, outrageous.
You have to keep in mind Messi is still probably 3-4 years away from his peak. He's definitely been off form these days though, his girlfriend is pregnant and I think she is due pretty soon. It's been obvious last 3 games or so that Messi's head is elsewhere. Still managed a good 5 or 6 assists though.
I didn't see any of the games today, kind of wish I saw City and BVB though.
