We’ll start with the obvious one in Joaquin.

The Real Betis captain made history on Sunday by becoming the oldest La Liga hat-trick scorer at 38 years and 140 days old.

Joaquin scored all three of his goals inside the opening 20 minutes of Betis’ 3-2 win against Athletic Bilbao. Incidentally, it was also his first-ever treble in his entire career.

The previous holder of this prestigious record was Real Madrid legend Alfredo di Stefano, who held it for 55 years.
