We’re back after the final international break of 2023 and it’s pretty close at the top of the battle for the Pichichi trophy.
La Liga’s equivalent of the Golden Boot, Robert Lewandowski scooped the award last season with his 23 goals helping Barcelona regain the 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 completed the loan signing of Joselu, who scored 16 times for Espanyol last term, intending to spread the goalscoring responsibilities but it’s another new signing currently top of La Liga’s goalscoring table.
Jude Bellingham has been the surprising goal hero for Real Madrid so far with 11 goals in his opening 13 league games. The Englishman leads the way outright in the race for the Pichichi trophy, despite missing the final game before the international breakthrough injury. His 11 goals include five in his opening four games and a brace against Barcelona to seal a comeback victory for Real Madrid — netting the equaliser and injury-time winner.
However, Bellingham has seen his lead cut to two goals with Antoine Griezmann in fine form for Atletico Madrid. The Frenchman moved onto nine to the season against Real Mallorca recently, one clear of Gerard Moreno and Borja Mayoral. There are then a host of players on seven goals, including Robert Lewandowski and Alvaro Morata.
Who will win this season’s award? Here is the breakdown after the first 11 games.
