In the 5th round of La Liga 2017/2018, Barca welcomed Eibar at Camp Nou. The Catalan side quickly showed their superiority with Lionel Messi's penalty opener in the 20th minute. At the end of the first half, Paulinho continued to shine to double Barca's lead, with a strike. Starting from the corner situation of Denis Suarez.

After the break, Denis Suarez raised the score to 3-0 for the home team. On the other side of the line, all Eibar could do was an honorable goal in the 57th minute, thanks to Sergi Enrich.

In the remaining minutes, Messi continued to prove to be the leader of the Nou Camp team when he scored 3 goals to complete the poker game that contributed to a 6-1 victory for Barca. With 4 goals in this match, Messi entered La Liga history as the 9th player to score 4 "pokers" in his career.

After that, the Argentine superstar also had 1 more "poker" against Eibar in the match in February 2020 to equal Ronaldo's record of 5 "pokers".

Up to now, despite joining PSG, Messi is still a player with more than 3 goals in 1 match in La Liga's 92-year history with 36 times.
