Luis Suarez scored two more goals against Espanyol and he has scored 37 in La Liga so far. Spectacular records that can make him win Golden Shoe and Pichichi Trophy when just a match is yet to be played.

In the Spanish League, the Uruguayan surpasses Cristiano Ronaldo by four goals difference and has everything to win Pichichi Trophy, given to La Liga's top scorer. In the Golden Boot, the prospects are also good because Higuain has scored the same goals as Cristiano, 33, and are tied in the second place, 4 goals behind Suárez. Next week the three strikers will play their last game of the season. We'll see if things change.

Record numbers

With just a Day to finish the season, Suárez could equalize or beat record numbers. In the entire history of La Liga, only four players have reached 38 goals in a season: Messi, Cristiano, Hugo Sánchez and Zarra. These last two scored 38 goals in La Liga and were not beaten until Messi and Cristiano arrived. The historic record is held by Messi: 50 goals in the 2011/12 season.

As for Hugo Sánchez, the Mexican scored 38 goals in the 1989-90 campaign. Zarra also reached this number in the 1950-51 season, but the merit is that he did it in 30 games. Suárez, now 37, can beat these records against Granada and also score the goal that gives the club its 24th Liga in history.
