Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang makes history with Barcelona hat-trick

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has made history with his hat-trick for Barcelona.

Aubameyang has made history after becoming the first player to score hat-tricks in four of Europe's top leagues in the 21st century.

The 32-year-old, in just his third appearance for the Catalans, netted three times in Barca's 4-1 victory against Valencia on Sunday, after the referee deemed that the former Arsenal man had scored instead of team-mate Pedri.

The three-goal showing means that Aubameyang is the first player since the turn of the century to score hat-tricks in the Premier League, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and now LaLiga.

Barca's fourth goal at the Mestalla was originally assigned to Pedri, but has since been changed to the Gabonese striker.

In France, he struck his treble with St Etienne, in Germany with Borussia Dortmund before leaving for England and Arsenal.
