If there's one good thing about European football becoming less competitive between those at the top and the bottom… we see a lot more hat-tricks these days.

They're becoming more common, all right. Ten hat-tricks were scored in the 2019/20 season – and though there were a few scored in the 1990s, the noughties exploded with players nabbing match balls at an epic rate.

One player has a hat-trick for three different clubs, with a further 12 players having each scored hat-tricks for two or more clubs. 10 players have scored a hat-trick on their competition debut, while seven players have scored hat-tricks in consecutive seasons.

Enough stats – tell us who scored them.
