BARCELONA, Spain -- Lionel Messi marked his 400th game for Barcelona with a master class of passing by setting up four goals to give Cristian Tello a hat trick in a 4-1 win at Levante in Wednesdays first leg of their Copa del Rey quarterfinal. Chad Williams Jersey . Denied by the hosts in the first half, Messi withdrew into midfield to turn playmaker and place four precise passes behind the defence that led to an own goal in the 53rd minute and Tellos treble in the 60th, 81st and 86th. Levante had held Barcelona to a 1-1 draw at Ciutat de Valencia Stadium just four days earlier in the Spanish league, and it was on course toward a similar feat after Nabil El Zhar netted in the 31st. But Messi again showed that he is much more than Barcelonas all-time scorer with 331 goals since his debut in 2004 by exploiting Tellos speed down the left flank with well-timed assists. "Its spectacular to have a player like Messi on your side," said Tello. "All four goals came from his boots." Elsewhere, Real Sociedad defender Mikel Gonzalez scored twice to help earn a 3-1 victory at home over third-division Racing Santander in their opening leg. Levante found Barcelonas weak spot in defending set pieces when Carles Puyols clearance of a free kick fell for El Zhar to score at the second attempt after goalkeeper Jose Pinto had blocked his powerful first shot. Barcelona was more inspired after the break and Messis first pass to Tello led to the equalizer. Goalie Javier Jimenez got down to block Tellos shot, but Loukas Vyntra struck the loose ball off teammate Juanfran Garcia and into the net. Messi again floated back to the centre of the pitch to draw the defence with him before threading another pass to meet Tellos run, and this time the forward fired the ball beyond Jimenez to give Barcelona the lead. The Argentina star fended off a tackle and slid a diagonal ball for Tello to score his second before Messi picked him out with a pass over the top for his third goal. "Our first half worried me, but we have players that dont need 45 minutes to turn the match around," Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino said. "(Messi) can change this and any other game. He can undo any type of defence. The tiredness of our rivals played its part and the spaces opened up as they wore down. Leo took great advantage of them." Puyol had to be replaced by Javier Mascherano in the 57th due to an apparent leg injury. The 35-year-old Puyol has been plagued by a series of injuries for the past two seasons. Martino, however, said that Puyols injury was "only a leg knock." Sociedad forward Gonzalo "Chory" Castro crossed twice for Gonzalez to score his goals, the first coming in the third minute followed by another in the 34th — just two minutes after Racings Andreu Guerao had hit the crossbar. Carlos Vela curled in Sociedads third in the 62nd, but Mahamadou Kone gave Racing hope for next weeks return leg by scoring in the 83rd.

LOUIS -- The Atlanta Braves used a two-run rally in the ninth to end their road trip with a win.ALAMEDA, Calif. - Khalil Mack has done just about everything the Oakland Raiders have asked of him his rookie season. He has solidified the run defence with his ability to fight off blocks and get into the backfield, pressured quarterbacks consistently as a pass rusher and forced offences to alter their game plans. The only thing lacking so far from Mack is something he was supposed to get frequently: a quarterback sack. Through seven games, Mack is still seeking his first sack despite being compared to pass rushing specialist Von Miller when he was drafted fifth overall in May. Its something thats kind of sitting on my mind, Mack said. All my teammates talk about it. It will come soon enough but even then Im working hard to get there. Mack has come awfully close, especially in recent weeks. He has been credited with 15 quarterback hurries and hits the past three games, according to Pro Football Focus, and his 22 pressures for the season are the most for any player without a sack. The consistent pressure is bound to lead to sacks soon enough. They will come, defensive co-ordinator Jason Tarver said. Keep pressuring the heck out of them, making sure everybody knows who you are and where is 52 and that stuff will happen. As long as hes around the ball, were happy. While Mack has lacked sacks, he has not lacked praise. Opposing quarterbacks Carson Palmer and Brian Hoyer singled him out after the past two games for his stellar play. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson called him a spectacular player who was playing like the defensive rookie of the year heading into Sundays game against the Seahawks. He jumps off the film, Seattle coach Peete Carroll said. Josh Rosen Jersey. Every one of our coaches, when they break up and start looking at the Raiders and taking seriously what theyre doing well, everybody comes back talking about him. Hes almost unblockable and hes got a great motor. Hes fast, hes tough, hes instinctive. We think hes an obvious factor. Mack played down the wide-spread praise he has received in recent weeks, saying it means nothing until the Raiders (0-7) have more success on the field. Its gratifying in a personal aspect but you want to go out and win the game, he said. It can mean something once you stamp a win. But were still working on that win. All you see out there is hunger for a win. Mack has been dominant against the run, where he is the biggest reason for a dramatic turnaround in recent weeks by the Raiders. Oakland has allowed just 2.9 yards per carry in October, second to Denver for the NFL lead. Mack is tied with Tampa Bays Lavonte David for the NFL lead with 8 1/2 tackles behind the line of scrimmage against the run, including 5 1/2 the past two weeks. Hes going to be measured in whether or not he sacks the quarterback, but I would just say that its been a long time since Ive seen somebody do that in the run game, interim coach Tony Sparano said. What he did in the run game to an opponent, this guy Khalil has just really dominated.
