BARCELONA, Spain - Lionel Messi scored a hat trick to emphatically break the Spanish leagues all-time scoring mark in Barcelonas 5-1 win over Sevilla on Saturday. Bruno Fernandes Jersey .Messi, already Barcelonas all-time scorer, surpassed Athletic Bilbao great Telmo Zarras milestone of 251 goals that had stood untouched since 1955.Messi equaled Zarras mark in the 21st minute and added goals in the 72nd and 78th to claim the record for himself.I have never seen a player like Leo, Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said. He is beyond comparison, one of a kind, never to be seen again. We are lucky to have him here, to enjoy him, and to see where he leaves this record.Messis record-setting effort came after rival Cristiano Ronaldo scored for the 19th and 20th time in the league to keep Real Madrid at the top of the table with a 4-0 win at Eibar.Madrid leads Barcelona by two points with Atletico Madrid four points adrift after the defending champion beat 10-man Malaga 3-1 at home.Messis tremle came after a week of wild speculation that he was wavering on his once steadfast commitment to Barcelona, following his comments that he might not spend most of his remaining career here.But the match ended with Messi smiling broadly as his fans chanted his name. Messis teammates tossed him in the air after his record-breaking goal, and lined up in an honour guard as he jogged off the pitch while soaking up the Camp Nou applause.Messis night started when he earned a foul from Sevillas Ever Banega on the edge of the area. Messi stepped up and curled the ball over the barrier with an elegant strike to claim the history-making goal he had searched for in vain in three previous matches.Sevilla had yet to manage a shot on goal when Unai Emerys side was gifted an equalizer from Jordi Alba two minutes after halftime when he knocked in a cross.Sevillas celebration didnt last long because Neymar headed Barcelona back in front two minutes later when he rose up to score Xavi Hernandezs free kick.Barcelonas Luis Suarez has been scoreless since his return from his biting ban, but he made up for it by making his fourth assist for Ivan Rakitic to score against his former team in the 65th.Neymar crossed for Messi to dive and tap home his second goal. Messi then dribbled across the edge of the area to fire in his third and complete his memorable match.Earlier, Ronaldo continued his own sensational scoring streak that includes him having scored in all 11 league games he has played in this campaign. He has 25 goals from 18 games in all competitions.The Ballon dOr-holder passed from an apparent offside position for James Rodriguez to head in Madrids first goal in the 23rd minute and Ronaldo put the result beyond doubt two minutes before halftime.Karim Benzema added a third goal from Rodriguezs pass in the 69th before Ronaldo got his second from the penalty spot in the 83rd to polish off Madrids 14th straight win overall.In Madrid, Tiago Cardoso scored and set up another goal as Atletico ended 10-man Malagas winning streak.Tiagos header put the hosts in front in the 12th before Arda Turan crossed for Antoine Griezmann to make it 2-0 in the 42nd.Malaga arrived after a club record five straight wins but Atletico denied the visitors a scoring chance until Roque Santa Cruz struck in the 64th.Malaga went down to 10 men when Samuel Garcia received his second yellow card in the 73rd, and Diego Godin headed in Tiagos lobbed pass in the 84th.Later, former Manchester United coach David Moyes makes his debut in charge of Real Sociedad at Deportivo La Coruna. Pepe Portugal Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. William Carvalho Jersey . Toronto (11-12) gave up leads in 10-8 and 11-4 losses to the Baltimore Orioles this week. It was never close Friday as the Boston Red Sox got to Mark Buehrle early en route to an 8-1 win.Goalkeeper Jack Butland is close to agreeing a new long-term contract at Stoke City. The 23-year-old England international has been in fine form this season and Stoke are looking to tie him down to a new deal, which could be for as long as five years.Butlands current contract runs until 2019 but it seems Stoke want to reward him for his efforts during a campaign in which he has emerged as a genuine rival to Joe Harts position as England No 1.  Butland haas been capped three times, keeping clean sheets against Lithuania and France last autumn, and currently appears poised to travel to Euro 2016 as Harts chief back-up. Beto Portugal Jersey. He took over as the Stoke No 1 this season after Asmir Begovic joined Chelsea and has kept 10 clean sheets in his 30 matches, conceding 36 goals.
