Lionel Messi continued his exceptional form at the Camp Nou, equaling Cristiano Ronaldo's La Liga record for most hat-tricks:

The Argentinian superstar buried two expert free-kicks and a penalty, putting Barcelona on the road to a relatively comfortable win. Sergio Busquets also got on the scoresheet, while Lucas Olaza gave the visiting fans something to cheer about with a free-kick of his own.

The win moved the Catalans into a tie for first place with rivals Real Madrid, who also picked up three points earlier in the day.

Karim Benzema scored twice for Los Blancos, while Sergio Ramos and Federico Valverde were also on point. Similar to their midweek demolition of Galatasaray in the UEFA Champions League, Real played some of their best football of the season, and they will surely be frustrated the international break has arrived just as they're hitting top form.

Manager Zinedine Zidane was pleased after the contest:

Daniel Wass and Ferran Torres got the goals for Valencia, who picked up their second straight win and seem to have recovered from their poor start to the season.

Granada have been a pleasant surprise for much of the season but have now lost three matches in a row.

Rodrigo made club history during the win:

Deportivo Alaves also picked up three big points on Saturday, putting some more distance between themselves and the clubs in the relegation zone. The Basques now sit six points ahead of Celta.
