However, the season was not totally lost for Lionel Messi has he won the Pichichi trophy, i.e the highest goalscorer in the league with 25 goals.

Lionel Messi scored two goals as Barça ran rampage against a toothless Alaves as Barça trashed Alaves 5 - 0 at their home ground.

However, when the press asked Messi about the Pichichi in the post match interview, he seemed not to be so excited, confessing that he would have preferred the title just as they won it last year and two years ago.

He said 'It (pichichi trophy) is secondary for me. I wish we had won La Liga, like last year."

Lionel Messi led both the goal and assist ranking in the LA liga this season just to confirm his supremacy to others in the league.
