With Cristiano Ronaldo out of the picture, the Portuguese’s record of 34 La Liga hat-tricks is under serious threat from Messi.

The Blaugrana captain is currently on 33, and will surely net a treble before the league season ends in May.

As hard as this may be for some to imagine, though, the last time Messi got a hat-trick came in March. Furthermore, his injury problems have been a cause for concern over at Camp Nou.

So, who knows? maybe Ronaldo can rest easy on this one after all?
