The Argentine found the back of the net three times in the Blaugrana's 3-1 win over Leganes, opening his account with a superb free-kick that had the crowd on their feet.

The 30-year-old has now scored six direct free-kicks in LaLiga for the Catalan giants this season, equalling Ronaldinho's 2006/07 tally.
