La Liga Top Scorers 2019/20

Not long ago, the La Liga golden boot seemed to be a straight race between the juggernauts of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. It was/is one of the greatest sporting rivalries of all time. Seeing the two titans battle out, not only for their clubs but also for individual awards an honours was a scintillating experience. In the nine seasons Ronaldo spent in Madrid, the two players won eight Trofeo Pichichis (the Spanish golden boot award named after Rafael "Pichichi" Moreno) between them. Luis Suarez interrupted their dominance the 2015/16 when he scored 40 goals to fire Barcelona to the league title, but other than this it was a Ronaldo/Messi dynasty.

1)    Lionel Messi

Since Ronaldo left Spain in favour of Italy and Juventus, you might expect his Argentinan rival to win the golden boot at a canter each year. And so far, although we have a limited sample size, this has proved correct. Last season he scored 36 times in 34 appearances, giving him a goals-to-games ration of more than one in one. It was the sixth time he won the accolade, a feat which brought him level with Telmo Zarra. With one more victory, he will surpass Zarra. Barcelona have recruited Frenkie De Jong and Antonie Griezmann in the summer and they have the strongest squad in the division yet again. Whether the arrival of Griezmann necessitates that Messi plays a more withdrawn role in order to accommodate the French striker, only time will tell. But even if this is the case it's hard to imagine a scenario in which Lionel Messi does not score 30+ goals yet again - if this is the case he will be in the strongest position to take home the Trofeo Pichichi for a record-breaking seventh time. Even if he doesn’t do it this time around, even at the age of 32, you’d expect him to eventually topple Zarra’s record. The Argentine recently scored his 600th career goal, the precedent for him taking home another golden boot couldn't be stronger.

2)    Luis Suarez

Another Barcelona player, Luis Suarez has proved his goalscoring prowess time and time again over the years. In total, he has scored almost 400 career goals, 127 of them in the last five seasons with the Catalan club. For a team which has boasted some of the greatest players of the modern era, it is an incredible achievement to have kept pace and even outscored them. Luis is now 32 years old and has begun to slow down slightly as a player. But if his physical attributes have begun to decline, his willingness to win and passion for the game certainly has not. Combative, frenzied and a born winner, Suarez has always shown an almost unrivalled desire to score goals and to help his team. The arrival of Antoine Griezmann at Barcelona could mean that Suarez either takes a back seat to the Frenchman, allowing him to be the central striker in Ernesto Valverde's plans; or it could fire him up to take back the position from the incoming World Cup winner. Only time will tell, of course - but history has told us repeatedly that you can't write off the Uruguayan.

3) Karim Benzema

This season will be Benzema's 11th at the Bernabeu. He has shown unwavering loyalty to Los Blancos even in the face of some staunch criticism of himself from the famously temperamental fans. Many of these fans have not bothered to disguise their disgust with Benzema's goal record which, on the face of it, is not particularly impressive. The Frenchman has only scored more than 20 in three La Liga seasons, one of the last campaign; for a club that has won the Champions League four times and the league twice in that period, this doesn't look a brilliant record. However, many have failed to acknowledge the unselfishness of Karim Benzema as a player - without him, it is doubtful that Cristiano Ronaldo's goal record would have been anything like as incredible as it was in the nine years they played together. Although he plays with it on the back of his shirt, Benzema often plays, not as a conventional number nine, but rather in a more withdrawn role. He brings the wingers or inside forwards into the game in a way that not many strikers are willing to do. He has undoubtedly been one of Madrid's most important players over the last decade. This season, with the arrival of Eden Hazard and a number of other superstar attacking options, many have speculated that Benzema will play a more conventional role - if this is the case, his natural goalscoring abilities will come to the fore and he has an outside chance of being the League's top scorer in 2019/20.
