The Argentine netted a brace against Celta Vigo, and scored once in midweek against Sporting Gijon, to take his tally to 23 La Liga strikes.

Only long-term leader Edinson Cavani remains ahead of him, with 27 goals, while Torino's Andrea Belotti made the biggest jump after netting five goals in his past two matches.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the only African in the top 10 and sits in fifth place, while Ronaldo climbed to 11th spot after netting a brace against Las Palmas in midweek.

However, because of his injury-enforced absence in Real Madrid's 4-1 win over Eibar on the weekend, the Portuguese was not able to break into the top 10 just yet.

Here are the top 10 goalscorers in Europe's top five leagues:

1) Edinson Cavani (PSG) – 27 goals [+1 goal]

2) Lionel Messi (Barca) – 23 goals [+3 goals]

3) Andrea Belotti (Torino) – 22 goals [+5 goals]

4) Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon) – 22 goals

5) Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (BVB) – 21 goals [+2 goals]

6) Luis Suarez (Barca) – 20 goals [+2 goals]

7) Harry Kane (Spurs) – 19 goals [+2 goals]

8) Robert Lewandowski (Bayern) – 19 goals

9) Edin Dzeko (Roma) – 19 goals

10) Gonzalo Higuain (Juventus) – 19 goals
