Barcelona 5-1 Osasuna: Messi's Four Goals Lead to Big Win at Camp Nou

Michael CernaCorrespondent IJanuary 26, 2013

A rather harsh pair of yellow cards for Alejandro Arribas changed the game early, but it is Lionel Messi's four-goal performance that will be the talk of the town tonight.

Cristiano Ronaldo's hat trick brought him within eight goals of Messi earlier in the day, but Messi took a big step forward in the Pichichi race just hours later.
