Messi's hat-trick against APOEL Nicosia saw him go past Real Madrid legend Raul.
He posted on social media:
"Happy to have beaten the Champions League goal record set by such a phenomenal player as Raúl. But what's really important is that our goals help us to get to Berlin to fight for the cup. We'll keep working at it."
