Leo Messi is on the way to making history again in Spanish and European football. The Argentine star keeps breaking records and setting statistics.
The hat trick obtained this Saturday against Sevilla at the Sánchez Pizjuán sees him extend his lead in the Pichichi trophy table, the top scorer in the Spanish league, with 25 goals. The same happens in the 'Golden Boot' rankings across European leagues. But focusing on La Liga, Messi has managed to reach the figure of 25 goals in the championship for the tenth consecutive season. With 13 games to go before the end of the season, Messi has already scored 25 goals - and Barcelona have played 25 games.

Goals that take him closer to his sixth Pichichi award and would see him rival Telmo Zarra, who is the only man who has won that trophy six times. Messi already broke the record for most goals in 11-12, when he hit 50. There are 13 weeks to go.
