Ernesto Valverde’s men clinched the title weeks ago now, but Sunday also brought confirmation that Lionel Messi had won his fifth Golden Shoe.
It’s been another amazing season for Messi and it’s no surprise to see him topping the standings again. It’s also the sixth time he’s been La Liga top scorer.

He’s been rested in the last couple of games so could probably have scored even more than the 34 La Liga goals, 13 assists and 14 shots off the woodwork he ended up with.
Messi will be in action over the summer in Russia as he tries to inspire Argentina to World Cup glory.
