In 2018, Leo Messi picked up a record fifth European Golden Shoe award
Leo Messi continues breaking records, season after season. This year he claimed another European Golden Shoe award, thanks to the 34 goals he scored in the 2017/18 LaLiga season.
That prolific campaign began with a brace on Matchday 2 against Alavés, and the flood of goals never stopped before the end of the season. The FC Barcelona striker earned his fifth Golden Shoe -awarded to the top marksman from the top European leagues- as a result, more than any other player in history. His closest rivals in 2017/18 were Mohamed Salah (32) and Harry Kane (32).
