Lionel Messi becomes the best scorer in the Spanish league for the sixth time in a row, with the Barcelona striker scoring Telemo Sarra's legendary record, about to win the European Golden Shoe for the sixth time in his career to improve his record.
Messi, who won his 10th national title, is the league's top scorer with 417 goals in 451 games and has been awarded 34 titles in Barcelona.
In 2014, Argentine Bargut broke a 60-year record when he exceeded 251 league goals on Sarra and became the top scorer in the history of the league.
Five years later, the top scorer in the competition ends five times (2010, 2012, 2013, 2017, 2018) with a sixth title if he faces Ebar on Sunday in the final phase of the competition.
The title is the same as that of Sera, the legendary Basque scorer, crowned six times between 1945 and 1953, after being equal in five titles with Argentine Alfredo di Stefano, Kenny and Mexican Hugo Sanchez.
After Cristiano Ronaldo & # 39; s departure from Real Madrid to Juventus last season, Messi was far away from him and he scored 34 goals so far. Uruguayan teammate Luis Suarez and Frenchman Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) have 21 goals.
With his 34 goals, Messi seems to be on track to win the European Golden Boot award, which is threatened by young Frenchman Kélian Mbabé (30 goals).
The world champions are returning to the Dijon competition in the French league this weekend, their last chance when Rains experiences the following week.
Despite the frustrating Barcelona exit in the Champions League semi-final against Liverpool (3-0 and 4-0), Messi's statistics remain impressive with 48 goals in 48 games this season in all competitions, the best in the Champions League with 12 goals.
