The Argentine netted a brace to inspire his side to a 4-2 comeback win on Sunday, after the Blaugrana had gone 2-0 down against Eibar inside the first 62 minutes of the clash.

Despite netting goals 36 and 37 of his 2016/17 La Liga campaign, however, Messi could not prevent Real Madrid from lifting the league title.

His teammate Luis Suarez finished second in the Pichichi race after netting 29 goals this campaign.

Cristiano Ronaldo, meanwhile, finished the campaign with 25 league goals – his lowest tally since joining Los Blancos – but will be celebrating his second La Liga triumph with Real.

Iago Aspas finished fourth in the Pichichi race, three goals ahead of Antoine Griezmann and Aritz Aduriz. Real's Alvaro Morata finished the campaign with 15 La Liga goals, one more than Malaga's Sandro Ramirez in eighth place.
