Dating back to 1929, the Pichichi Trophy is awarded by Marca to the top goalscorer in La Liga.

The Spanish duopoly with Real Madrid and Barcelona have recently stretched to the Pichichi. Since Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival in 2009, both he and Lionel Messi have alternated winning the trophy.

This league season has been a game of Can You Top This? between the two.

Ronaldo scored a hat trick against Levante on February 12. One week later Messi scored four goals against Valencia. When Ronaldo scored a backheeled goal this past week against Rayo Vallecano, Messi scored a wonderful free kick against Atletico Madrid.

It's amazing to watch the two best players in the world face off like this.

Although Messi might be the superior player, Ronaldo is destined to repeat as Pichichi winner.
