Real Zaragoza 2-4 Barcelona – Goals & Highlights Video

Lionel Messi continued his remarkable goalscoring form with a hat-trick as Barcelona moved level once more with Real Madrid at the Primera Liga summit with victory at Real Zaragoza.

The Argentina winger, who also scored a hat-trick in his last league match against Valencia, opened the scoring with a header after five minutes and added two more after the break to send his side 3-0 ahead.

That should have made the game safe for Barca, but Zaragoza rallied with a brace from substitute Adrian Colunga to set up a nervy ending.

Messi, however, quickly stamped out the threat as he embarked on another mazy run to earn a 90th-minute penalty which Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who until then had been profligate, slammed home for his first league goal since February 14.
