Messi-3 Consecutive Golden Shoe

Football is the most played and followed sport in the world without any doubt. It has created many rivalries in every decade but the most consistent and inspiring one is Messi vs Ronaldo. 

Therefore, many times both of them has crossed each other's record on both individual and team level. In 2016, Cristiano Ronaldo had more Golden Shoe (4) than Messi (3). From there Lionel Messi changed history and overturned that record by securing 3 Consecutive Golden Shoe from 17-19. Let’s find out how little man has chased his Rival in terms of European League Goals from 2017-2019.

2016-2017 Season

Little magician has won his fourth Pichichi (La Liga Top Scorer) along with the fourth Golden Shoe. This is the first of 3 successive Golden Shoe where he scored 37 Goals in 34 Games. The season in which he equalled the record of Ronaldo.

2017-2018 Season

The season in which Messi has taken the record from his arc rival Cristiano Ronaldo. In the 17-18 season, Messi has 34 Goals in 36 Appearances. In 17-18, he scored an overall 52 Goals that taking the goal tally up to 617 Goals in his career. 

2018-2019 Season

A vintage season of football maestro. Many football fans believed that Messi had single-handedly brought Barcelona to the verge of winning the Champions League in this one. Moreover, he scored 36 Goals in this La Liga campaign while playing 34 Games. A season where he has closed the competition by winning a record 6th Golden Shoe which is Most in the football history.

It is one of the most disregarded points of Messi’s career that he doesn’t get much praise for overturning this record. Although he hasn’t won the Champions League between these years but clinching the record of scoring most league goals that too for 3 successive seasons is a massive achievement. In that time frame, Messi has scored 107 League Goals to Ronaldo’s 72 League Goals.


The race for European Golden Shoe started in 2008 when Ronaldo earned his first-ever Golden Boot in Manchester United. Messi’s long rival has won The Accolade on four occasions 2008, 2011, 2014 and 2015. Messi won three times in 2010,2012,2013 before settling a tremendous record of 3 consecutive golden shoe. Messi-Ronaldo rivalry is the longest-ever rivalry in football history where both have made unbelievable records. However, this comeback of the Argentine Footballer must be appreciated which he accomplished in the latter stages of his career.
