The first African to register a hat-trick in the La Liga was Larbi Ben Barek from Morocco in 1949 when his side Atletico Madrid defeated Espanyol.

In all 12 Africans have scored hat-tricks in the La Liga, Boateng is the only Ghanaian on the list, while Samuel Eto’o Fils is the only player with three ha-tricks.

In addition to that he has emerged as the first Ghanaian player to score against both Real Madrid and Barcelona in the same football season.
