Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Makes HISTORY After Barcelona Hat-Trick Against Valencia

1

Barcelona forward Pierre-Emerick 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.

His first hat-trick in European football came while playing for Saint-Etienne in February 2012 against Lorient, where he netted three times just two months after signing permanently with the Ligue 1 club.

However, after moving to Borussia Dortmund a year later, Aubameyang did not take long to hit the ground running in Germany.

On his Bundesliga debut against FC Augsburg, he scored a memorable hat-trick including a goal from his first shot in the league.
