◼️ The triplet achieved by the Argentine against Deportivo La Coruna not only made possible the coronation of Barcelona in La Liga, but also took him to the top of the standings for the top gunner award.

The road to the Golden Boot 2017/18 is written week by week. In the recent action of the European leagues, Lionel Messi stood out for his hat-trick against Deportivo La Coruña, which served for Barcelona to be consecrated in the Spanish League.

In addition, on the personal side, the Argentine allowed him to climb to the top – in solitude – in the classification for the Golden Boot: he dethroned, as well, Mohamed Salah, who could not convert in the goalless draw of Liverpool against Stoke City . The advantage of the rosarino is that he will still have four league games to play, against the two that remain to the Egyptian.
