Messi Moves Ahead Of Ronaldo
With just five games left to play, Lionel Messi has moved ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo in the European Golden Shoe race.

The Argentine netted his side's only goal within their shock 2-1 home loss to Granada on Thursday night.

FC Barcelona's defeat within their catch-up game saw them miss out on the opportunity to go the surface of the LaLiga table, so that it was a bitter blow for Messi and his teammates.

The 33-year-old, though, did do enough to just do it of Ronaldo in the Golden Shoe ranking and transfer to second place behind Robert Lewandowski.

However, it appears unlikely he will catch the Bayern Munich striker, who has scored an unbelievable 36 goals in the Bundesliga so far this season.

Messi happens to be 10 strikes behind him, but has now moved one goal before Ronaldo, who is in joint-third place with Andre Silva, Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe.
