Pedri was initially credited with the goal before it was subsequently changed, and Aubameyang has now become the first player in the 21st century to score a hat-trick in Ligue 1, the Bundesliga, the Premier League and La Liga.

Aubameyang has also become the first player to score two hat-tricks in competitive games at Mestalla as he also netted a treble for Arsenal in the Europa League in 2019.

It was only a matter of time but the striker has also become the first Gabonese player to score in La Liga.

Speaking after the game, Barca boss Xavi praised Aubameyang’s display and said the striker is ‘very intelligent’.

‘He has scored goals his entire career,’ said Xavi.

‘It was to be expected that he would score here soon, too.

‘He goes very well to space. He is mature. He is very intelligent. I am delighted with him.

‘These two [subsequently changed to three] goals will go very well for him.

Meanwhile, Sergio Busquets says having Aubameyang in Barcelona’s squad is a ‘luxury’.

‘He is working very well,’ said Busquets.

‘He arrived with a lack of minutes but he is now getting them.

‘He added his second start and I hope he helps us like that because he is a great player, and it is a luxury to have him in the squad.’
