Storklubberne FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are set side by side in the top of the Spanish league.
Both have 25 points in 12 matches after Real Madrid earlier on Saturday won 4-0 over Eibar and Barcelona in Saturday's late match won at home with 4-1 over Celta Vigo.
Celta had Pione Sisto in the squad. The dane has not received much playing time this season, but coach Óscar Garcia, who earlier in the week replaced the sacked Fran Escribá, looked Sistos path from the first process in the job.
Sisto, however, was no actor. The nibbled Lionel Messi as so many times before. He scored a hat-trick and created the euphoria at the Nou Camp with, among others, two frisparksperler.
It was messi's 34. hat-trick in La Liga, and he touches the thus Cristiano Ronaldo's record of just 34 by the ones in the best Spanish variety.

Barcelona came in front on a penalty kick about midway through the first half. It was slated for hand on the ball in the box and Lionel Messi executed devil from the stain.
Later in the half-time had Messi again the ball in the net, but the referee took WAS in use and failed to approve the scoring.
Celta was hard pressed and had not much to offer offensively, but the team went for it, when it got the opportunity after 41 minutes. Or rather Lucas Olaza did when he turned a free-kick perfectly into the net from a good 20 metres.
It would Messi not be back. Barely five minutes later - in halvlegens stoppage time - he performed the same from exactly the same position in the other end. Increasing the argentinian found målhjørnet, so pausestillingen sounded 2-1.
And the magic did not stop here. The second half was only two minutes old when Barcelona got a free kick at exactly the same place again. And Messi kicked with the same inevitability the ball into the same place in the goal for 3-1.
Shortly after Sisto chance, but his attempt from an acute angle in the missing gunpowder. After 64 minutes was the dane picked out.
From the bench, he could see Sergio Busquets score the match the last goal. From the edge of the field he kicked a returbold in by the post to the end result.
