Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi could be set to win the coveted Pichichi trophy if he continues his impressive goal-scoring record.
The Argentine has not won the award since 2012/13 season, but could now upset Cristiano Ronaldo to win the trophy.
Pichichi trophy is awarded to the highest goal-scorer in the La Liga at the end of every season.
Messi is currently leading the La Liga scoring charts with 23 goals, two more than second placed Luis Suarez, while CR7 is third with 19 goals so far this season.
Former Liverpool star Aspas is fourth with 14 goals – one more than Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann.
Messi has claimed the Pichichi trophy thrice in career, as many as Ronaldo.
