Leo Messi converted this past Sunday against the Alavés in the player with more Pichichis of the history of the Spanish league. The Argentinian was equalised until this season with Telmo Zarra, legend of the Athletic, but surpassed him when adding the trophy at most goleador of this campaign. The '10' has now seven, one more than the Basque, and of this way has agrandado a bit more his legend in the world of the football and in Spain.

The one of Rosario, besides, equalised another mark in the Spanish competition when adding his fourth Pichichi consecutive. Until the moment, Hugo Sánchez was the only that had attained to do something like this, but the Barcelona has removed him this honour to the Mexican. The ex forward of the Real Madrid achieved to do this between 1984 and 1988, attaining the first with the Athletic of Madrid and the three following with the group merengue.

But the one of Hugo was not the only record that equalised Messi with his seventh Pichichi. The captain of the Barça also did the same with another mark of two of the greater legends of the history of the football, Eusebio and Gerd Müller. The two 'killers' were until this moment the only in having achieved win seven trophies of maxima goleadores of his leagues in all Europe. Now, both will share this privilege with Leo.

In the case of the Portuguese, the 'Black Panther' achieved to do with his seven awards between 1963 and 1973. It won seven in ten years, heaving of consecutive way five, between the 1963 and the 1968, and the others two in the 1970 and in the 1973. 'Torpedo' Müller did with his seven Pichichis between the 1966 and the 1978, with one in the course 66/67, two followed between the 68 and the 1970, three consecutive between the courses 71/72 and 73/74, and the last in the 77/78.

Messi has won his between the 2009 and this 2020, with the first in the season 09/10, other two been still in the 11/12 and the 12/13, and four followed between the 16/17 and this 19/20. Only Cristiano Ronaldo​ in three occasions and Luis Suárez in one attained to snatch him some trophy of maximum goleador to the Argentinian from this first in 2010. With 33 years, everything seems to indicate that at least it will win one or two more before withdrawing to surpass to Eusebio and Müller.

Messi does not have rival in Spain from the course of Cristiano

Luckily for the '10' of the Barcelona, the course of Christian to the Juventus of Turín has him allanado completely the way to be followed adding Pichichis. Karim Benzema has been his big rival this campaign, but the French has finished remaining something far, to four so many, 25 for Leo and 21 for him. If another big goleador in Spain that can compete directly with him, the captain barcelonista is allocated to be the king of the goal in Spain until it withdraw or decide to go.
