The first of Messi's 50 free-kick goals came in November 2008 in a league game against Atlético Madrid at Camp Nou.
"It seems as if I am anti-Argentine, but until Messi plays in the big games, he will continue to be a player of home games", Gatti told the El Chiringuito de Jugones.
Messi sniped in a free kick in the 34th minute, giving Barcelona a 3-1 edge.
The five-time Ballon d'Or victor, who scored two goals in the game, looked back to his imperious best and was clearly emptying his box of tricks throughout, particularly when he found Plano in his crosshairs.
"We're in a week of three matches and it was important to start it well".
Barcelona took the lead after just two minutes when the ball bounced fortuitously to Lenglet in the area and he crashed an effort in off the crossbar.
Messi set up one Suarez goal in the matches against Real Valladolid, Eibar and Inter, proving that this world-class strike partnership is back in business.
Guardiola continued: "I was lucky enough to have him, and Xavi and [Andres] Iniesta and Dani Alves and [Gerard] Pique".
Messi flicked one via the legs of Oscar Plano, who threw his head again and for a second stopped useless in frustration.
In injury time, Messi will have to accept had his hat-trick however curled broad of the left put up when he appeared particular to realize.
Earlier, Atletico Madrid were held to a 1-1 draw by Alaves. It's not just that he makes one move and unbalances them, but he sees what nobody else sees.
Alvaro Morata came off the bench to score his third goal in as many games but Lucas Perez hit a stunning late equaliser at Menizorrotza to ensure a tight contest between two of La Liga's most stubborn defences ended all square.
