2013 Goals for club and country: 45
In 2012, Barcelona superstar Leo Messi managed a stupendous record-breaking tally of 91 goals for club and country (an average of 3.35 per game).
In 2013, the diminutive Argentinean has managed less than half this amount, but he still broke records: On May 5 he scored in his 21st consecutive league game, becoming the first footballer in history to net in consecutive matches against every team in a professional league.
Messi also won his sixth La Liga title and his sixth Spanish Supercopa, along with the Pichichi, the European Golden Shoe and Best La Liga Player accolades.
The Atomic Flea scored seven times for Argentina, bringing his total career tally to 37, surpassing the all-time totals of Hernan Crespo and some chap called Diego Maradona.
