Leo Messi has in his power the big majority of records of the Spanish championship. The Argentinian is a legend of the FC Barcelona and of LaLiga and until you withdraw goes to be followed breaking all the statistical milestones that put him by in front. One of the few that has not broken still has to see with the penaltis and involves directly to the Real Madrid and to his big beast goleadora, the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo.

The ex '7' of the group madridista, already in the Juventus of Turín, is the maximum goleador of the history of the team merengue. But besides that, the Portuguese also has the honour to be the player that more maximum penalties has thrown and marked in the history of the Spanish national competition. CR7 annotated of white 61 penaltis of 72 that launched in the 9 years that was in Santiago Bernabéu. It is a data of spectacular tarpaulin, with a so much from the 11 metres each 4,78 crashes and 6,7 thrown each League of average.

After him it goes to find Messi in little time, but for the moment the Argentinian goes to have to surpass to Hugo Sánchez, also ex madridista. The Mexican, mythical tip of the years 80 and one of the big goleadores that has gone through the Spanish football, annotated 56 penaltis in 71 opportunities that had to mark. In total would be a marked maximum penalty each 3,69 meetings.

After them it arrives at last the '10' barcelonista, that curiously has thrown fewer launchings from the 11 metres that the Mexican and the luso having been much more time in Spain. In seven years more in the championship, the one of Rosario has thrown 67 penaltis and has annotated a total of 55, with 1 put each 8,62 parties. The average by League of the Argentinian would be almost the half that the one of CR7, since it is of 3,4 by course.

Messi was not the first thrower until the course of Ronaldinho

In normal conditions would be a scandal that the difference was so exaggerated, but it is necessary to take into account that Messi happened several years in the FC Barcelona without being the attendant to throw the penaltis. In his three first courses in the Barça, the now captain culé saw like Ronaldinho was the first thrower. It did not go until the course of the Brazilian in the 2008 when the international albiceleste began to launch them of usual form. Cristiano arrived to the Madrid to the following year, by what the difference is not so big as it seems.

Besides, also it is necessary to take into account the generosity that has showed to have Read with his mates. The '10' has left him in several occasions launchings to Neymar Jr in his day or to Luis Suárez to break bad series goleadoras or to try mark 'hat-tricks'. The now '7' of the Juve has done it in explained occasions with Karim Benzema or Gareth Bleat, his ex mates in the forward.
