Stat of the Day: Hat-trick Heroics

Stat of the Day: Hat-trick Heroics

Lionel Messi scores a hat-trick for FC Barcelona every 18 games (22 hat-tricks in 412 games).

And even though I loathe the apparently mandated need to compare, the Clásico is coming up so, Cristiano Ronaldo has a ratio of 1 hat-trick for every 35 games (18 in 575) over his professional career.
