Leo Messi is a footballer to the one who the challenges do not scare, but rather on the contrary. In the individual challenges and communities is where Leo Messi finds his passion by the football, the necessary motivation not to leave to love this sport to the that has given him all, and of the that has obtained the absolute glory making history dressed with the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona.

But Leo Messi still has a lot of aims for fulfilling before hanging the boots, and some of them have to see with LaLiga Santander. Along his career already has achieved to heave with five 'Pichichis -that have cost him four Boots of Gold- with the Barcelona, and this season 2018-19 has the opportunity, if it goes back to heave maximum goleador of the championship, to equalise the mark of six 'Pichichis' that has Telmo Zarra.

For the moment, what already has achieved Leo Messi is to be the 'Pichichi' with more goals in the history of LaLiga. It was in the season 2011-12 when the Argentinian heaved at most goleador of the championship reached a figure never before sight in Spain: 50 goals.

The one who more has approached to this figure along the history was Cristiano Ronaldo, three years afterwards, although the ex player of the Real Madrid remained with two goals less than his big antagonist in the modern football: 48 targets. In addition to Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo (the two in two occasions), only Luis Suárez has been the maximum goleador of a League reaching the 40 goals.

Some figures that put of self-evident the potential of the current forward of the FC Barcelona, comandada by Luis Suárez and Leo Messi, and that in fact have his echo in the present course. And it is that, with nine goals each one passed 12 days, Argentinian and Uruguayan keep like leaders in the table of classification of the 'Pichichi' 2018-19.

We remember that the first goal of Leo Messi in League lived it the Camp Nou on 1 May 2005. 'The Flea' so only was present on the lawn hardly three minutes, after substituting to Samuel Eto'or in the 87', but had time to sign his first target thanks to the big pass of Ronaldinho, that used to bend with a vaselina to the guardameta of the Albacete, Valbuena. It has rained a lot since, and the legend of Leo Messi surpasses, with grow, to which wrote Ronaldinho with the Barcelona T-shirt.
