Former Valencia attacker Edmundo Suarez struck 51 times in the competition for Los Che, while Los Blancos legend Ferenc Puskas and Barca icon Laszlo Kubala hit the back of the net on 49 occasions each in the tournament.

In at eighth is former Real talisman Santillana with 48 Copa goals, followed by the aforementioned Messi on 47 strikes – the same number of strikes Cesar Rodriguez Alvarez scored in the competition.
