Lionel Messi extends his lead at the top of the ESM Golden Shoe standings after scoring for Barcelona in their 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid.

That’s 38 for the season for the Argentinian and the 16th consecutive league game in which he has scored. 

Elsewhere, it was a quiet weekend for the leading contenders, with Liverpool’s Luis Suarez the only striker in the top ten to get on the scoresheet. The Uruguayan continued his impressive season by notching a hat-trick in the Reds’ 4-0 win at Wigan Athletic.

**Rules

Only the leading four countries – Spain, Italy, Germany, and England – in the UEFA rankings have two as their multiplier. This is to emphasise the difference in (international) performance level between clubs from those countries and those of other nations.A player cannot play first in a summer league (e.g. Norway) and then in a winter league (e.g. Spain) and combine the points totals for each season.
