Lionel Messi's goal against Real Sociedad earned Barcelona three points and made him the top goalscorer in Europe's big five leagues in the all-time standings, with 438 goals in 474 games.

He overtook Juventus's Cristiano Ronaldo, who has 437 goals in 540 matches. Ronaldo could level if he scores for Juve against Inter on Sunday, although the game could be cancelled because of the corona crisis.

Behind Messi and Ronaldo is a big gap. They are followed by Jimmy Greaves (366), Gerd Muller (365) and Steve Bloomer (314).

Messi is the head of the Pichichi chart this season, with 19 goals in 22 games. He's also given 12 assists.
