LaLiga Golden Boot race: Can Benzema upstage Messi in Pichichi battle?

Barcelona and Real Madrid are engaged in a serious battle for the LaLiga title with only three matches to go. 

Just like the battle for the title, the Pichichi prize is up for grabs and the two teams' leading marksmen are going for it. 

Lionel Messi leads the standings with 22 goals, four ahead of Madrid's Karim Benzema. 

The Argentine has scored three goals in eight matches since the restart, allowing the Frenchman to move to within four goals. 

The two though are not alone at the top with Villareal's Gerard Moreno two goals off Benzema on 16, even though it's highly unlikely he could march to the top. 

Barcelona's teammate and striking partner Luis Suarez is also among the leading pack with 15, same as Athletic Bilbao's Raúl García.
