Messi equals Rivaldo and Eto’o

Roger Bogunyà

Lionel Messi’s hat-trick in the Spanish Super Cup on Saturday evening took his goals tally to 130 for FC Barcelona as he drew level with club legends Rivaldo and Sameul Eto’o.

The Argentinian has netted the huge tally of official goals in a short time and that has been speeded up by his incredible record of six hat-tricks, which included a four-goal haul in the Champions League against Arsenal.

He still has some way to go before reaching the club’s all-time record scorer César Rodríguez who netted 235. Ladislao Kubala scored 194, Josep Samitier 178, Josep Escolà 164, Paulino Alcánatara 137 and Ángel Arocha 134.

Hat-trick king

No player can compete with Messi’s ability to score hat-tricks though as he has netted three against Tenerife, Valencia, Real Zaragoza, Sevilla and Arsenal in 2010.

Palop favourite
