The football is stopped and Leo Messi, of the same form that the rest of professional footballers, keeps fit in his domicile waiting for that restart the competitions. To the Argentinian star never have mattered him too much the individual registers, but after having won the last prizes like the Balloon of Gold and the FIFA The Best, wishes to follow accumulating distinctions.

One of which has more near is the 'Pichichi' suspender belt, when commanding in the classification with 19 goals annotated in 27 days, although it could not participate in the five first by fault of an injury. It finds to a big distance of the rest of his perseguidores, and if it attains the trophy will be already the seventh 'Pichichi' of his sportive career, with that will surpass the six of Telmo Zarra and will turn into the player with more 'Pichichis' of the history of LaLiga.

In the current championship suspender belt, Leo Messi only has seen door in 11 of the 22 parties that has played, with a póker against the Eibar, twice 'hat-trick' -in front of the Mallorca and the Celtic of Vigo- and a doublet in front of the Valladolid. In the four cases, in the Camp Nou. Simultaneously, 'The Flea' has arrived ininterrumpidamente to the 19 goals in League from the season 2008-2009.

This yes, if the competitions gave by finalised as they are, would be the first time in which the Argentinian star would conquer the trophy of maximum scorer marking his goal number 19 in the day 27 or back. If it restarts LaLiga, does not foresee that anybody was able to snatch him the prize.

First 'Pichichi' with 19 goals for Messi?

And it is that Messi aventaja in five so many to his more immediate perseguidor, the forward of the Real Madrid Karim Benzema, and in eight to the third in discord, the quartet formed by Luis Suárez -at present lesionado-, Gerard Moreno (Villarreal), Lucas Pérez (Alavés) and Roger Martí (Raise).

Be 'Pichichi' with only 19 goals would be something unpublished for Messi, and the first time that would happen in LaLiga in the 21st century. The last 'Pichichi' with less than 20 goals, in this case 19, went the attained by Emilio Butragueño with the Real Madrid in the campaign 1990-91.

Anyway, it will be necessary to be slopes of how evolve the events in Spain, since the football and the sport nowadays are the minor of the priorities. Leo Messi and the rest of his mates in the FC Barcelona know it perfectly.
