He is the sixth player and the first Barcelona player to score four goals in a single Champions League match.
The other five who have done it are:
- Marco Van Basten (Milan against IFK Gothenburg November 1992)
- Simone Inzaghi (Lazio against Marseille March 2000)
- Dado Prso (Monaco against Deportivo La Coruna November 2003)
- Ruud van Nistelrooy (Man Utd against Sparta Prague November 2004)
- Andriy Shevchenko (Milan against Fenerbahce November 2005)
- Lionel Messi (Barcelona against Arsenal 6th April 2010)
and to think that Messi is only 22 years old....phenomenal!
