Leo Messi follows having the first position in the career by the Pichichi of the season 2019-20. The Argentinian star remained without 'wet' in the Classical against the Real Madrid -had three clear occasions but could not concretise any of them- but his 18 goals in the current championship suspender belt follow him giving an advantage of five by in front of Karim Benzema, second with 13.

It is necessary to remember that, in the present campaign, the Barcelona captain lost several parties by injury in the start of the same, a hándicap that does not avoid that it keep on being the maximum artilleryman of First Division. Besides, of these 18 goals annotated, only two have been of penalti, having marked also four of direct fault, twelve with the foot and any of finish of head.

Nevertheless, there is a data that begins to concern in the Argentinian and is, of the same way that the Barça in general lines, the little effectiveness that is showing in the parties out of house. Of these 18 goals annotated in LaLiga only 3 have been out of house and, to day of today, accumulates three months without seeing goal in parties that are not contested in the Camp Nou.

The last time that Messi achieved to mark a goal to domicile was in the victory that the FC Barcelona achieved against the Athletic of Madrid (0-1) in Wanda Metropolitan, contested the past day 1 December. If we extrapolate the data explaining all the competitions, the results are even more exaggerated: it Has marked 23 goals and only 4 have been out of house.

In spite of this bad series of the crack culé, his registers in the Camp Nou are formidable, what keeps him in the highest of the fight for being maximum goleador of LaLiga with these 18 so many. Karim Benzema, that also crosses a moment of wet gunpowder, carries 13 in spite of that began the championship like a shot.

Curiously, the third maximum goleador is Luis Suárez, that does not play from the past month of January, with 11 goals, the same that Lucas Pérez (Sportive Alavés). To both follow them, also empatados, Gerard Moreno (Villarreal) and Ángel (Getafe), that have annotated 10. Besides, there is a quíntuple tie to 9 goals between Iago Sails (Celtic), Chimy Ávila (Osasuna), Ocampos (Seville), Maxi Gómez (Valencia) and Loren (Betis).
