As the 13th match day of the the 2019 La Liga season approaches, the leaderboard of the top goalscorer list is topped by the Real Madrid superstar Karim Benzema with 9 goals to his name, followed by Villarreal CF striker Gerard Moreno who has netted the ball 8 times. However, FC Barcelona are leading the league table, and a club ‘Giant’ is making his presence felt in the goalscorer list. Lionel Messi, of course.
The San Francisco based sports website Bleacher Report has a hysterical representation of the situation. See for yourself below, courtesy to their official Twitter-

In the picture, Benzema and Gerard are at the ‘Top Scorers’ cliff, jostling for a golden egg, signifying the top spot of the leaderboard. A mammoth sized Messi is shown climbing the cliff, making his presence felt, similar to his ascension on the list with 8 goals.
In today’s clash against RC Celta de Vigo, the Blaugranas dominated with a 4-1 win, and the 32 year old skipper secured a hat trick with two spectacular free kicks and a spot kick, which brings him on par with Gerard Moreno, just next to Benzema.
The Galacticos’ French forward scored a brace in the 4-0 away victory over SD Eibar. Villareal, however, down in 10th spot in the league table, has seen brillant consistency from their 27 year old Spanish striker, who has netted the ball in almost all fixtures for El Submarino Amarillo.
