Video: Anything you can do... Messi hits four one week after Ronaldo hat-trick
One week after Cristiano Ronaldo won the plaudits for a dazzling hat-trick in La Liga, Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi showed the world who is boss last night.
After second-placed Barcelona's home clash against third-placed Valencia was perceived to be one of the Catalan giants toughest games of the season, Pep Guardiola's men ran out 5-1 winners in a tie memorable for a four-goal haul from an extremely effective Messi.
