Messi scores his first hat-trick in 2016

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Lionel Messi scored his first hat-trick of 2016 as Barcelona got back to win­ning La Liga ways with a com­fort­able 4-0 vic­tory over Granada.

Bacra was held to a score­less draw in a bad-tem­pered match at city ri­vals, Espanyol, last week­end.

But the diminu­tive Ar­gen­tine had his shoot­ing boots with him at the Nou Camp Satur­day to en­sure there would be no re­peat fail­ure to score against one of La Liga's lesser lights.

Ney­mar put a cap on pro­ceed­ings by adding a fourth late on but he could do lit­tle to out­shine his South Amer­i­can strike part­ner.
