Messi hits hat-trick & Ronaldo grabs double in their matches .......

 Messi breaks goal record & Ronaldo Struck 2 more goals......

Cristiano Ronaldo struck twice as leaders Real Madrid crush  Eibar 4-0 on Saturday while Lionel Messi set a La Liga record of 253 goals with a hat-trick in second-placed Barcelona's 5-1 of Sevilla.

James Rodriguez nodded Real in front in the 23rd minute at Eibar's tiny Ipurua stadium in the Basque Country, which holds fewer than 6,000 spectators, and Ronaldo's scuffed shot made it 2-0 just before the break. Karim Benzema cracked the third in the 69th minute and Ronaldo netted from the penalty spot seven minutes from time as the European champions swept to a 14th victory in a row in all competitions.

The latest victory put the world's richest club by income two points clear at the top with 30 points from 12 matches during which they have amassed 46 goals, 20 of them coming from Ronaldo in 11 appearances.

At the Nou Camp, Messi matched Telmo Zarra's 1955 record of 251 goals when he curled in a delightful free kick to give Barcelona a 21st-minute lead.

27-year-old Argentina captain's effort was cancelled out by a Jordi Alba own goal in the 47th minute before Neymar headed in a Xavi free kick two minutes later.

Uruguay forward Luis Suarez, still to open his account with his new club, set up Ivan Rakitic to nod Barcelona's third in the 65th minute and Messi completed his 30th career treble with goals in the 72nd and 78th.

Barcelona are two points behind Real who beat them 3-1 in Madrid last month.
