It is a wonderful problem to have for Barcelona. Two of their leading goal scorers, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, scored hat-tricks against Valencia in Wednesday night's Copa del Rey semi-final with the former grabbing four and the latter, three.
It was a sensational performance from both of them, but, following the conclusion of the 7-0 drubbing, attention turned to which one would get to take home the match ball.
According to Mundo Deportivo, club chief Carles Naval originally approached Messi and handed it to him.

However, the Argentine already has a vast collection of match balls – 37 in fact – and also wanted it to go to his team-mate, who had outscored him on the night. So he rejected it.
It was only then that Naval pulled out all the stops to get a second match ball so they could both go home with a well-deserved momentum. It lead to that rather iconic photo you see at the top of this article.

Following last night's demolition job, it seems that Barcelona are destined to complete an unthinkable double treble this season. With Messi, Suarez and Neymar all in fine form, they appear unstoppable.
Indeed, the barrage of goals last night took Barcelona over the 100-goal mark for the season already. Of the 105 goals, Messi, Suarez and Neymar have contributed 80.
