La Liga

After Messi scored two goals today, see who tops the La Liga Golden Boot standings

With his two goals tonight, Lionel Messi (9) is now the joint topscorer in La Liga together with Luis Suárez.

The Argentine forward scored a brace as Barcelona defeated Athletic Club 2-3 at San Mames this evening after Pedri opened scoring for the Blaugrana.

Lionel Messi was named Man of the Match as the win moved Barcelona (17 games played) up to 3rd 7 points behind leaders Atletico Madrid (15 games played) who crashed out of the Copa Del Rey after a 1-0 loss at 3rd Division side UD Cornella today.

Pedri: "We prepared the game well, we knew how they would play, for example looking for Williams' speed. They scored a goal against us very early, but we didn't lower our arms. We had confidence and faith to come back. I'll stick with that."

Pedri: "I had never scored a goal with my head before."

Pedri: "During the 1-2, Leo passes me from behind and he let me knew that he was behind me, otherwise I probably wouldn't have seen him. Then, I gave him the ball."

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez Gerard Moreno and Iago Aspas are all tied on 9 goals as the race for the Pichichi is getting hot.
