Barcelona enjoyed a successful 2018, winning La Liga and the Copa del Rey and they end the year top of the league again.
It was also another superb year for Lionel Messi. He ends 2018 having scored 47 goals and contributed 23 assists - meaning he’s been involved in almost half of Barcelona’s 147 goals this year.

Messi also finishes 2018 as La Liga’s top scorer so far this season with 15 goals, not bad going when you consider he missed a few weeks with a broken arm.
