Lionel Messi ended the 2017/18 LaLiga season as the top scorer in the Spanish top flight, and his 34 goals also earned him a fifth Golden Shoe award.

And on June 24, the date of his 31st birthday, what better way to celebrate than watching them all over again?

The 2017/18 campaign was the ninth to see Messi score more than 25 goals in a LaLiga season, and it hardly goes without saying that NOBODY had ever done that before. And maybe never will again...

The last time Messi failed to reach a quarter-century of goals was back in the 2008/09 season. But he hardly did that badly then either, netting the impressive total of 23 times.
