Benzema Leads The Pichichi Race But Messi Is Near

Karim Benzema scored two goals in Real Madrid‘s 4-0 win over Eibar to take his LaLiga Santander tally to nine for the campaign and moves to the top of the Pichichi chart.

However, the Frenchman will not be sleeping easy as Leo Messi‘s hat-trick against Celta Vigo just hours after puts the Argentine within just one goal of the Madrid striker.

Remarkably, Messi missed five matches at the start of the campaign through injury, but has bounced back with eight goals in his last seven outings.
