Lionel Messi: The king of La Liga

La Liga has stopped for now, owing to COVID-19. After 27 match-days, Barcelona are top of the league by two points. Lionel Messi has been key to giving Barca the lead over rivals Real Madrid. The club captain has been the difference for over a decade in La Liga, leading the Blaugrana to ten league titles. This season has been no different – Messi has notched 19 league goals and created 12 goals in 22 league games played – the most goals and assists by any player in La Liga 2019-20. One must remember that the Argentine missed the first four league games through injury. The 32-year-old also has the most shots on goal (105). If Barcelona win La Liga this season – it will be the eleventh league title for the man from Rosario, Argentina – who continues to reach numbers never seen before.
