Barcelona star Lionel Messi is aiming to haul in Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo in the race for the Pichichi.

Messi is in the mix for the Pichichi title as the Spanish League's leading goal scorer - something he has already won on three occasions - after his goal against Getafe on Saturday.

The Argentinean is three goals behind the current leader Cristiano Ronaldo - who also scored at the weekend

Messi's goal against Getafe meant he overtook Diego Costa who failed to score in Atletico's defeat against Levante, and he now has 28, to Costa's 27, with Cristiano Ronaldo on 31.
