The Argentine ace scored another spectacular hat-trick to fire Barcelona to a 4-1 victory on Sunday.
Luis Suarez, whose superb flick set up Messi's second, scored his own brilliant goal after a scintillating solo run but it was ultimately reduced to a footnote, in what became another night all about his Argentinian partner.
One wrote: "After all Messi's goals, we identify with the expression of Pau Lopez".
Messi, who scored twice in Barca's 5-1 win over Olympique Lyonnais in the Champions League on Wednesday, now has 29 goals in 26 La Liga appearances and 39 strikes in all competitions.
Betis were looking every bit as threatening as their visitors, though, and it took some fine last-ditch defending from Barcelona to keep them at bay shortly before the half-hour mark as they peppered the box with risky crosses.
Suarez limped off injured in the final minutes and Messi could have added a fifth, only for the post to rescue Betis. "I'm very grateful to them and happy for the victory, which was very important", Messi said.
Barcelona is playing in unbelievable form right now and once again have a chance to win triple crown this season, LaLiga, Copa del Rey and Champions League.
Messi started the night as he meant to go on, firing home a free-kick right into the top corner. Vidal threaded through a wonderful through ball for Messi, who squared the ball for Suarez but the Uruguayan striker could only shoot tamely on his left foot straight at Lopez.
Suarez shot tamely at Lopez when presented with a great chance by Messi but the duo combined for the Barca captain's second goal on the stroke of half-time. But even for him, the sight of the Real Betis fans were applauding by the end tugged on the heartstrings. "But we didn't suffer at all", said Messi, who will return to Argentina duty in the upcoming global break, via Sport.
The Argentine still took the matchball home as Barcelona opened up a 10-point lead over their closest challengers with only 10 games of the season remaining, surely putting them on course for a fourth league title in five years.
