BARCA'S LIONEL MESSI WINS 5th GOLDEN SHOE

Barcelona superstar striker Leo Messi wins 2018 Golden Shoe award

Lionel Messi has scored 45 goals in all competitions this season to win the Golden Boot. In addition to his 34 goals in the Spanish La Liga elite league, Messi has also scored 6 goals in the UEFA Champions League, 4 in the Copa del Rey and 1 in the Spanish Super Cup, making a total of 34 goals in 54 appearances. Messi has produced 17 assists, his 12 in La Liga more than any other player in the competition. Messi continues to set new records. The Argentine has ended the season with 34 goals in Spanish La Liga, making him not only Pichichi winner but also the top scorer in Europe and winner of the Golden Shoe award for a record-breaking fifth time. With his 34 strikes, Messi finishes two ahead of second-placed Mohamed Salah of Liverpool in the rankings. The amazing Barça number 10 won the award for the second successive season and to become the first player to win it no less than 5 times. Messi topped the goalscoring rankings in Europe for the first time in 2009-2010 with 34 goals; in 2011-2012 he took it with an stunning total of 50; a season later with an also impressive 46m and last season with 30 goals. The Argentine’s consistency is undeniable: in 8 of the last 9 seasons, he has finished first or second in the rankings of all of Europe’s top goalscorers.

Barcelona vs. Real Madrid - La Liga

Barcelona's Leo Messi ended the 2017-2018 season by winning his fifth Golden Shoe and Pichici awards. Mo Salah was his top competition in the race for the former, but Messi was way ahead of his contemporaries in the domestic competition. Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani, Robert Lewandowski and Harry Kane again lost out. Had Messi scored in his cameo appearance against Real Sociedad on Sunday night, it would've been Barcelona's 6,000th goal in the league and 100th this season.
