The magical Argentine continues to set the standard in world football after posting another 50-goal season across all competitions.
36 of those strikes came in LaLiga, earning him yet another Pichichi award for being the top scorer in LaLiga. Since 2010, he's won that award six times. Here are Messi's goal tallies in LaLiga since season 2009/2010, just to illustrate how ridiculously consistent he has been.

As usual, Messi scored his goals in a variety of ways. Chips, free kicks, curlers from outside the box, lobs, you name it, they're all there.
Messi and Barcelona ended up being disappointed in the Champions League this season against Liverpool but they will want to complete a domestic double this weekend when they face Valencia in the Copa Del Rey final.
