How Aubameyang made European football history with Barcelona hat-trick


Why Pedri's stunner vs Valencia was credited to Aubameyang, and how it helped Barcelona's new striker set a European record

The 4th goal netted by Barcelona during the club’s meeting with Valencia on Sunday has been reassigned, in the process allowing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to etch his name into the history books of European football.

Hitman Aubameyang has of course taken center stage in the Spanish media headlines this evening.

This comes on the back of the Gabonese international’s stellar efforts during Blaugrana’s La Liga trip to the Mestalla to face Valencia.

Afforded his first league start for the club, ‘Auba’ went on to fully repay the faith of boss Xavi Hernandez, notching a brace inside the opening 40 minutes of proceedings:

Not only that, but, on the back of the full-time whistle on Spain’s east coast, it was subsequently revealed that, in fact, Barca’s new center-forward had secured for himself the match ball.

This came after a stunning effort on the part of teammate Pedri was attributed to the former Arsenal man, owing to a deflection en route to the Valencia net:

And, in turn, Aubameyang, as alluded to above, etched his name indellibly into the history books of European football.

As per Squakwa, the veteran hitman is the first player since the turn of the century to bag a hat-trick in all of Ligue 1, the Bundesliga, Premier League and, now, La Liga:

On the up

Turning attentions back towards the La Liga table, their latest triumph on Sunday has seen Barcelona reestablish themselves as firm favorites to clinch 4th spot in the Spanish top-flight.

The Catalan heavyweights now sit on 42 points, level with champions Atletico Madrid below them, and four points adrift of Real Betis above.

Crucially, though, Xavi and co. boast a game in hand on both, as a spot in next season’s Champions League, once a distant possibility, begins to look increasingly likely for the rejuvenated Blaugrana.
