All the world has clear that Leo Messi is the best player that has played never in LaLiga Spanish -Javier Thebes never tires to remember it-, but this Sunday went back to confirm . Because, with the marked doublet by the '10' in front of the Eibar in Ipurua, sentenced the one who already is at all less than the sixth 'Pichichi' of his career in LaLiga Spanish, equalising the six prizes that won Telmo Zarra.

The mythical forward of the Athletic of Bilbao achieved his 'Pichichis' in the Leagues 1944-45, 1945-46, 1946-47, 1949-50, 1950-51 and 1952-53, whereas Leo Messi has done it in the seasons 2009-10, 2011-12, 2012-13, 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19. Zarra Had left his tope goleador in 251 targets annotated in LaLiga, a record that already does several years that powdered the 'crack' of the FC Barcelona.

And it is that, with his two goals in Ipurua, Messi has reached already the 419 targets in LaLiga Spanish, having harvested the 'Pichichi' of the present season 2018-19 with 36 so many. Now, by behind the six 'Pichichis' of Telmo Zarra and Leo Messi remain the five of Alfredo gave Stéfano (1953-54, 1955-56, 1956-57, 1957-58 and 1958-59) in the Real Madrid; Enrique Castro 'Quini' (1973-74, 1975-76, 1979-80) in the Sporting and (1980-81 and 1981-82) in the Barça; and Hugo Sánchez (1984-85) in the Athletic and (1985-86, 1986-87, 1987-88 and 1989-90) in the Real Madrid.

With four trophies to maximum goleador of LaLiga Spanish finds Férenc Puskas (1959-60, 1960-61, 1962-63 and 1963-64) with the Real Madrid. Leo Messi already has surpassed them to all except to Telmo Zarra, but of face to the next campaign will have the big aim to go back to erigirse as 'Pichichi' of the championship to become the one who have more prizes to better goleador in solitary.

When Messi wins the 'Pichichi', also achieves the Boot of Gold

Messi, by the way, already has almost sentenced the one who will be the sixth Boot of Gold of his sportive career, since whenever it has won the 'Pichichi' has cost him also to consecrate at most realizador of the big European leagues.

This season 2018-19 will not be less, because it seems more than complicated that Kylian Mbappé mark four goals in the last party of Tie 1 that remains him for contesting with Paris Saint-Germain, in the field of the Reims next Friday 24 May. It will be the date in which, with all probability, confirm the new individual prize of Messi. A distinction that, sure, will do him play even more motivated and with better humour the final of Glass of the King of the day afterwards, in front of the Valency in Benito Villamarín.
