Lionel Messi matched Xavi's figure in the 1-0 victory against Real Valladolid, when he became the first player in LaLiga to clinch the league's highest assist in a single season, registering 20 goals and 20 assist.
The Argentine international played the ball into the box for 17 year old Ansu Fati to knock in the opening goal against Deportivo Alaves.
Just 10mins after setting up Ansu Fati's goal, Messi scored his own goal when he ran onto a pass from Riqui Piug before knocking past Alaves to double the lead.
The World Best player scored again in the second half of the game to lift his side 5-0 up, taking his tally to 25 goals in LaLiga this season ahead of Karim Benzema with 20 goals.
Messi then claimed the Pichichi trophy, given to the league's highest goal scorer, for the seventh time in his career, which Cristiano Ronaldo has no opportunity to do that seven times during his time in Spanish LaLiga.
