Barcelona defeats Getafe 5-2 on Thursday night to keep up with the rest of the two chasing teams in the La Liga title race on Thursday night.

Barcelona who find themselves 8 points behind table-topper Atletico Madrid before their game against Getafe on Thursday night, but we're able to reduce the gap to just five points despite having played a game short of the Atletico Madrid 32 games in the La Liga this season. And the convincing 5-2 win against Getafe ensures that Barcelona had the chance to win the La Liga title this season if they can defeat Atletico Madrid, who they host on 8 May at the Camp Nou in what is believed to be the tiebreaker title in the La Liga this season.

However, the highlight of the Barcelona win on Thursday night has to be Lionel Messi letting of the chance to score his first hat trick of the season after he allows fellow forward Antoine Griezmann to net an injury-time penalty, and despite the fact he had only need a goal to net score his first hat trick of the season.

And this unselfish act from Lionel Messi has wowed many fans online, and with many people comparing him to Christian Ronaldo who believe that he would never have done so when he needs just one goal to complete his first hat trick of the season.
