The Argentine netted a superb hat-trick in his side's 4-1 win at Real Betis on Sunday, taking his tally to 29 goals in LaLiga this season.

As a consequence, he has opened up a three-goal gap on second-placed Kylian Mbappe, who scored once in Paris Saint-Germain's 3-1 victory over Marseille on the weekend.
