Lionel Messi Brilliantly Chips The Keeper From Inside The Box To Complete Stunning Hat-Trick

Lionel Messi has hit a stunning hat-trick against Real Betis including a utterly outrageous third goal.

The Barcelona skipper put his side in front against Real Betis by converting a ridiculous free-kick. He then made it two after a tidy finish.

But he left his best strike till last.

The 31-year-old started the attack by passing the ball to Ivan Rakitic. The Croatian midfielder then set-up Messi who brilliantly chipped the keeper from inside the box in glorious fashion. This is just filth.

Stop it, Lionel!

That's now 29 La Liga goals to his name. Another prolific term for Messi. What a player.
