Lionel Messi set new assists and goals records in La Liga with a spectacular first half display against Girona on Saturday.

After putting his first goal past Chelsea in a 1-1 draw in the Champions League on Tuesday, Messi brought the list of sides he has failed to score against in his career down to 10 against the Spanish side on Saturday.

Girona took a a surprise early lead at Camp Nou, but Messi was on hand to help pull his side level two minutes later when he set up Luis Suarez to record his 148th assist in the Spanish top flight, a new all-time high.

At the half hour mark, Suarez returned the favour as the Argentine got his first goal against their Catalan neighbours in two attempts.

The Argentine was the star of the show as his side came back from an early slip up to take a huge lead before the break against Girona.

The 30-year-old appeared to have missed his chance to beat Girona goalkeeper Bono when he tried to switch to his left foot and was crowded by defenders, but he managed to make the space for his shot.

He has now scored against 36 opponents in La Liga, more than any other player in the history of the top flight, edging past Real Madrid legend Raul and Athletic Club star Aritz Aduriz.

Messi then went on to score another one six minutes later, sending a free kick under the wall and beyond Bono before playing a key in the build up to Suarez's second of the game as Barca held a 4-1 lead at half-time.

A Philippe Coutinho strike in the second half ran the score to 5-1.

Suarez rounded out his hat-trick with a nice finish in the 77th minute as the league leaders rolled to a 6-1 win.

Bubble Watch: NCAA Tournament Bubble as Competitive as Ever

  Bubble Watch: NCAA Tournament Bubble as Competitive as Ever With less than three weeks until Selection Sunday, the top of the tournament field at this time of the season is as uncertain as it has been in recent memory. Conversely, this is as strong a bubble as I remember in my five years at the head of SI.com’s Bubble Watch committee. We project teams such as Texas, Arkansas and Butler as No. 9 and 10 seeds, which would make them prototypical bubble teams in an ordinary year. However, they are closer to taking themselves off the bubble in a good way than they are to falling out of the field, as are many of their neighbors in the seed list.
