Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain is delighted with his current scoring form.

Higuain took his tally to 20 goals in his last 17 league games during Madrid's 3-1 win over Sporting Gijon on Sunday, and he is just five behind fellow Argentinian Lionel Messi at the top of the Primera Division scoring charts.

The 22 year-old said: "My objective is to beat the number of goals I scored last year. I'm only two away, but aside from my personal aims, my main goal is to help the team. If we are champions and I score goals, then so much the better."
