Updated: April 8, 2012

Barcelona closed within three points of leaders Real Madrid when Lionel Messi struck twice in a 4-1 comeback win at relegation-threatened 10-man Real Zaragoza in La Liga on Saturday. As well as helping the champions put pressure on their arch rivals, the Argentine became the first player to score 60 goals in a season in European top-flight soccer in almost 40 years.

Real Madrid are in action at the Santiago Bernabeu today against Valencia.
