We’re still early in the new La Liga season but already, there’s an interesting battle developing for the Pichichi trophy.
Robert Lewandowski led the way last season with his 23 goals helping Barcelona regain the Spanish top-flight title. However, the Pole was the only player to surpass the 20 mark.
Karim Benzema notched up 19 for Real Madrid, who have big shoes to fill following the Frenchman’s departure for the Saudi Pro League and Al-Ittihad.
Los Blancos have completed the loan signing of Joselu, who scored 16 times for Espanyol last term, but it’s another new signing currently leading the way. Jude Bellingham has been the surprising goal hero for Real Madrid so far with six goals in his opening eight league games.
The Englishman does lead the way outright in the race for the Pichichi trophy, one clear of a trio on five goals, Joining Lewandowski and Alvaro Morata is perhaps a surprise name in Takefusa Kubo, who has started the season in fabulous fashion for Real Sociedad. Bellingham’s teammate Joselu isn’t too far behind him on four goals, in what has been a goal-friendly start to the campaign.
Who will win this season’s award? Here is the breakdown after the first six weekends of action.
