FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi is currently far ahead of Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo in La Liga’s scoring charts for the season – could the Argentine win yet another Pichichi over the Portuguese?

Messi and Ronaldo have been taring defences a part for longer than a decade, but it is in La Liga where they both grew to superstar status.

Since the Portuguese international joined Spain’s top flight in the 2009/10 season, the two attackers have dominated when it comes to goals, with Messi winning his first Pichichi in that season, after scoring 34 goals in 35 matches for Barca, according to Transfermarkt.

The 2010/11 season saw Ronaldo win his first top scorer award in Spain, after a campaign in which he hit the back of the net 40 times from just 34 games.

The 2011/12 and 2012/13 Pichichi awards were both won by the Blaugrana’s Messi, as the Argentine hit the back of the net 50 times and 46 times respectively.

Ronaldo then won the award for two seasons running, scoring 31 times in 30 games in the 2013/14 campaign, and 48 times in 35 matches in 2014/15.

The 2015/16 season saw a break in cycle, as Barca’s Luis Suarez fired 40 goals from 35 matches for the Catalan giants, pipping both his teammate and Ronaldo to the accolade.

Barca's 12 Highest Paid Players

Messi was back to dominating ways last season, scoring 37 goals in 34 matches for Barca, and is currently nine goals ahead of Ronaldo in this campaign. The 30-year-old has scored nine times from the five league matches he has played, while Ronaldo has featured just once in La Liga this season, a game in which he failed to score.

Do you think the Argentine will beat Ronaldo to yet another Pichichi? Let us know in the comments section below.

I was expecting messi's fans to remind us that their player played in La Liga before cr7 just like they use the "Age-card" every time cr7 tops their favorite
