And he followed it up with an exquisite dink over the wall from slightly closer range early in the second half.

Messi is one of the best free-kick takers in history and made his shot on Saturday night look just as effortless as ever.

His first free-kick went up and over the wall, and curled away from helpless Celta Vigo goalkeeper Ruben Blanco into the top corner.

It restored Barcelona's lead in first half injury-time of the La Liga clash.

Messi had earlier given Barcelona the lead from the penalty spot before Lucas Olaza's equaliser for the visitors.

And he completed his hat-trick with his second brilliant free-kick early in the second half, floating it up and over the wall and leaving Blanco with no chance again.

Sergio Busquets added a late fourth as Barcelona went back top of La Liga ahead of Real Madrid on goal difference.
