FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has finished top-scorer of LaLiga for a record sixth time with 15 more goals than his  nearest rivals for the award.

The Argentine star finished the season with 36 league goals after netting twice on the final day which moved him a record tally ahead of second-placed duo Luis Suarez and Karim Benzema.
 
The gallery above displays the top-scorers of the 2018/19 LaLiga season.
 
It is the third consecutive season the five-time Ballon d'Or winner received the award and sees him equal the record for most wins that was set by former Athletic Club star Telmo Zarra 66 years ago.
 
No player has ever won the Pichichi by such a clear margin - the previous record of 14 was set in 1986-87 by Hugo Sanchez.
 
It also marks the fifth season in which the 31-year-old has reached the 50-goal mark for a single season across all competitons.

2009-10: 34 goals
2011-12: 50 goals
2012-13: 46 goals
2016-17: 37 goals
2017-18: 34 goals
