As the only top-15 player still plying his trade in LaLiga, Barcelona's Lionel Messi is chasing down those cup goal scorers ahead of him, and Saturday's final is next up.
Sevilla play Barcelona in the 2018 Copa del Rey final and that means another chance for Lionel Messi to add to his domestic cup tally, one that already has him on 47 goals.

The all-time top scorer in the cup is Telmo Zarra from Vizcaya, who scored 81 goals for Athletic Bilbao. Zarra is followed in the scoring list by Samitier (69) and Gorostiza (62). They are the only three players who have passed the seventy-goal mark. Quini, who died two months ago, scored 55 and Puskas and Kubala both notched 49.
As for the goals-to-game record, the Spanish-Hungarian Puskas has had the best return in the competition, with 49 goals in 41 matches.
