Lionel Messi is on course to smash his own La Liga scoring record this season, the Argentine performing exceptionally well, despite losing star teammate Neymar during the summer.
Telmo Zarra set the La Liga scoring record to 38 goals in the 1950/51 season, a record that stood until Cristiano Ronaldo notched 40 league goals in 2011. Messi then blew his Portuguese counterpart out of the water by hitting an incredible 50 goals during the 2011/12 season.
Currently averaging 1.8 goals this season, the 30-year-old is set to smash his previous record and score over the 50 goal record he set five years ago.
Messi and Falcao have both scored more goals this season than 74 of the 98 teams in Europe’s top five leagues this season.
