The 'grandparents' of La Liga are a guarantee of goal

Leo Messi, Karim Benzema, Raúl García, Iago Aspas, Santi Cazorla or Sergio Ramos have been the most successful when it comes to drilling the opposite goal.


The 2019/2020 League has left us unforgettable moments, unstoppable goals, impossible stops, unattainable dribbles, historical records and data, many data, of the most curious. The success of a team depends on making veterans and novices work, but in this year's domestic competition the goal has been the work of the former, who are experiencing a second youth. The 'killers' who appear in the fight for Pichichi are already notably recognized players in that role, although more than one has been uncovered this year as a scorer. The most remarkable thing is that, out of the top15, nine players are over 30 years old, and the fifteen are over 25.

This dynamic is repeated in the best Leagues in Europe. In England, Jamie Vardy (33 years old), a Leicester player, is the Premier's top scorer with 23 goals. In Italy, Immobile (30 years old), a striker for Lazio and Cristiano Ronaldo (35 years old), for Juventus, with 29 and 28 goals respectively, are fighting for the Serie A award. In Germany, five times maximum Gunner Robert Lewandowski (31 years old) of Bayern returned to lead the Bundesliga's Pichichi with 34 goals. Only in France it is not fulfilled, with Kylian Mbappé (21 years old), PSG player, who has been for the second consecutive year the top scorer with 18 goals in the only League that did not continue after the confinement.

Real Madrid: Karim Benzema (32 years old, 21 goals) The league champion has not stood out for being a steamroller. What's more, this year his success has passed through the walls of his defensive quartet, plus an unquestionable Thibaut Courtois. Real Madrid's goal in this competition has been very distributed, 21 players from the white squad have seen the door. Only the field players, Brahim, Militao and Odriozola have failed to score. The young man from Malaga did manage to score a double in the Cup, but his little participation in the League has deprived him of the goal.And although in this Madrid the vast majority know what it is to score a goal, two leaders have stood out above the rest. The first, Karim Benzema (32 years old), with 21 goals and second in the scorers table. French, who stopped being a “cat” a long time ago, has been '10' and '9' this course. The undisputed center striker of Real Madrid has established himself as one of the best in the world and his name has entered white history by placing himself as the fifth top scorer in the history of Real Madrid with 248 goals (169 in the League, 52 in the Champions , 21 in the Copa del Rey, 3 in the Club World Cup, 2 in the Spanish Super Cup and 1 in the European Super Cup), behind only Cristiano Ronaldo (451), Raúl (323), Di Stéfano (308) and Santillana (290) .

The second, Sergio Ramos (34 years old). In oblivion was his release to the clouds in the penalty shootout against Neuer in the semifinals of the 2011-12 Champions League. Today nobody shoots penalties better than him. If there is a penalty in favor of Madrid, there is a goal for the Whites. Its effectiveness has been 100%. Ramos has scored 11 goals and 6 of them have been from 11 meters. In addition, he has reached the figure of 100 goals in his club career.Barcelona: Leo Messi (33 years old, 25 goals) Although the number is small because of how he is used to us, Leo Messi (33 years old) has managed another year, and they are now seven, to be the top scorer in the Santander League: 25 So many, 11 fewer than the previous year, have been enough to take a Pichichi who is still decaf in his fight after Cristiano Ronaldo's departure to Juventus. This year the Golden Boot has been far from fighting, in whose top3 is Lewandowski with 34 goals, Immobile with 29 and Cristiano with 28 (these last two are still in competition and can catch up to the Pole). Despite his low records, Messi remains number 1 in goals, assists, shots, complete dribbles and sometimes generated.

And behind Messi, Barça's second goalscorer has been his teammate and friend Luis Suárez (33 years old). Although the Uruguayan has been far from his best level, his sense of smell and scoring instinct are still intact. The striker has scored 16 goals this season, fourth at Pichichi. And that on January 12 he was operated by Dr. Cugat of a meniscus injury in the right knee. What seemed, predictably, the end of his season, has meant a "signing" in the resumption of competition after the quarantine of the pandemic.

Atlético de Madrid: Álvaro Morata (27 years, 12 goals) The rojiblanco team distinguishes itself from the rest of the teams by a clear commitment: youth in its lead. After the sensible departure of Antoine Griezmann, Atlético de Madrid placed their trust from the first day in the duo formed by Álvaro Morata (27 years old) and João Félix (20 years old). The former Real Madrid, Juventus or Chelsea player tries every day to win the love of his fans based on goals. And, at the moment, although far from the Frenchman's figures, he succeeds, being the top scorer of his team in the League with 12 goals.

The star signing has scored half goals, 6, and has not yet shown why Atlético de Madrid paid about 127 million euros for him, making him the most expensive player in his history. Despite his limited contribution, from the club they have no doubt that the former Benfica striker is still young and will explode in the Wanda Metropolitano. In addition, up to four injuries have tarnished his season.Injuries have also been a problem for Diego Costa (31 years old), which has prevented him from giving his best version. After the break he took ownership, but Morata's success has relegated him to the bench. Even so, Simeone has alternated his forwards and Costa has had the opportunity to score 5 goals this year.Seville: Lucas Ocampos (26 years old, 14 goals) Today, when talking about a clear example of winger with a goal, undoubtedly his name should appear: Lucas Ocampos (26 years old). The signing of Sevilla has been the most outstanding player of the Seville team, but also one of the revelation players in the League. His 14 goals have been decisive for Sevilla to play the highest European competition next season.

On the other hand, the reference striker for the red and white team, Luuk de Jong (29 years old), has not been as fortunate in front of goal. His coach, Julen Lopetegui, has opted for him as his center forward, despite the rain of criticism towards the Dutchman. In the end, the League ends with 6 goals, insufficient to be the center forward of a Champions team. For his part, En-Nesyri reaches 8 goals, but half scored with CD Leganés.

Villarreal: Gerard Moreno (28 years old, 18 goals) The goal in Villarreal also has a name and surname. The League's Czar, Gerard Moreno (28 years old), has scored 18 goals with the yellow shirt and finishes in third place at Pichichi. The Spanish international is an expert in scoring the first goal for his team, since 10 of his goals were the first goal for the Castellón team. Of those 18 goals, only 1 has come from the penalty spot.

And it is that the person in charge of launching the maximum penalty in the yellow submarine is the experienced Santi Cazorla. (35 years). The Asturian not only returned to football after eight operations and two years without playing, but now we are seeing one of his best versions. In this course he has managed to overcome his best goalscoring data: 11 goals in La Liga, 4 in the Copa del Rey and 1 with the Spanish team against Malta.

Real Sociedad: Willian José (28 years old, 11 goals) The San Sebastian team has been one of the teams with the greatest offensive potential and the fourth highest scorer with 56 goals. And unlike other teams, the Real has not had a single benchmark in attack, but several. The team's top scorer has been Willian José (28 years old) with 11 goals, followed by Oyarzabal (23 years old) with 10, Isak (20 years old) with 9 and Portu (28 years old) with 7.

The 'txuri urdin' strikers have thus had an internal “battle” to be the Pichichi of Real Sociedad. The Brazilian, who occupies pole, is also the fifth foreigner with the most goals with the Real Socidad in Primera with 49 goals in his 128 games. Ahead has four historic forwards like Kovácevic (92 goals), Kodro (73), Vela (66) and Nihat (58) .

Granada: Carlos Fernández (24 years, 10 goals) Carlos Fernández (24 years) is in fashion. The young Granada striker has shown a great level in the Andalusian team. His performance has been so high under the orders of Diego Martínez, that in Seville they are already rubbing their hands with their more than possible return. His return is more than a priority for the Sevillian club, since the player, owned by Sevilla, has been one of the sensations of the League and has won 10 goals, a new opportunity in the Andalusian capital.

Granada's second goalscorer has been Machís (27 years old), in charge of breaking Thibaut Courtois' unbeaten record. The Venezuelan footballer has played one of his best seasons with 7 goals and the team's first in assists. And the third scorer, a veteran of Spanish football, Roberto Soldado (35 years old). The forward, who now participates more in the construction of the game, has been the Nasrid player who has generated the most goals this year, with 7 goals in the League, 4 in the KO tournament, and has given 6 assists between both tournaments. With 7 goals also, Antonio Puertas.

Getafe: Jaime Mata (31 years old, 11 goals) Getafe CF today has one of the best tridents in its history, more by numbers than by name: Jaime Mata (31 years old), Jorge Molina (38 years old) and Ángel Rodríguez (33 years old). The MMA has been more goalscoring than the BBH, which was presumed as the starting forward of Real Madrid. The strikers of the Azulón team, who have exceeded 100 years between the three, have worked like a charm with José Bordalás.

The former is demonstrating in Primera what was already foreshadowed in Segunda. His numbers in Getafe were awarded with a deserved call with the Spanish team on March 15, 2019. In this course he has scored 11 goals. Molina has shown that age is only a number on the DNI and has seen the door on 5 occasions, leaving flashes of incalculable brilliance, while Ángel, who starts as a shooter in most games, is one of the best substitutes for La League with 10 goals

Valencia: Maxi Gómez (23 years old, 10 goals) Despite being the top scorer of the Ché team with 10 goals, Maxi Gómez (23 years old) has not lived a dream year in Valencia. Injuries, discussions with Celades and the low individual and collective performance have been some of the setbacks of one of the signings that aroused most enthusiasm at the beginning of the season. In addition, after the mediocre season at Valencia, it is expected that there will be an indentation of players in the transfer market, although Maxi's name does not appear among the transferable. His youth is key for the club to continue seeing in him an essential bet in the future of the club.The one that they will listen to offers is for the second top scorer of Valencia, Dani Parejo (31 years old), who has seen the door up to 8 times. The captain, a specialist from the penalty spot and in direct free kick, sounds like the substitute for Ever Banega in Sevilla.

Osasuna: Chimy Ávila (26 years old, 9 goals) He was in a spectacular state, his name sounded strong for Champions teams, such as FC Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid, but an injury that came at its best prevented the Argentine will change his shirt this season. Chimy Ávila (26 years old) broke the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee on January 25, 2020. At that time he was fourth in the fight for Pichichi, only behind Leo Messi, Karim Benzema and Luis Suárez. Despite having spent almost 7 months since that day, his number of goals (9) has been unsurpassed for his teammates.

Close has been Rubén García (27 years old), who with 8 goals has sustained Osasuna after the loss of his most differential player. But Osasuna has not only ensured their permanence in First Division, after promoting this season, but until the last moment has dreamed of a European place, thanks, in part, to an unbeatable return after confinement.

Athletic Bilbao: Raúl García (34 years old, 15 goals) This season the Basque team and the League said goodbye to one of Athletic Club's most emblematic players, Aritz Aduriz. At 39, the "lion" hung up his boots and left the club of his life. After a few dreamy last years, where he was even called up by the national team, Aduriz left his place up front. And that hole could not have had a better substitute: Raúl García (34 years old). The Navarrese has added 15 goals and has been the top scorer of the championship in the second round.

The goals have fallen out of his hands, regardless of the month of the year. 'Rulo' has made his name for history after becoming the first player in the League to have scored at least one goal in the twelve months of the year. His new position as center forward has helped him make these records. Iñaki Williams (26 years old) and Iker Muniain (27 years old) have accompanied Raúl García in the scoring function, but they have remained far from the figures of the veteran former colchonero.

Levante: Roger Martí (29 years old, 11 goals) Roger (29 years old), one more season, went from less to less in the competition. At the end of December he already had 8 goals in his locker. Finally, the League ends with 11, a figure that enshrines him as the striker he is. After demonstrating his effectiveness in Second, Roger manages to be Levante's benchmark for the second goal for the second consecutive year.In Levante they are very happy with the team's second scorer, Borja Mayoral (23 years old), who this year has scored 8 goals. The granota club will ask Real Madrid for a new loan. However, Valencia, Villarreal, Getafe and Seville have Parla on the agenda. Only one less goal has been scored by Bardhi (25 years old) who, with five goals after the restart, has become the top scorer in the history of Levante.

Valladolid: Sergi Guardiola (29 years old, 8 goals) With 8 goals, Sergi Guardiola (29 years old) has led the table of scorers for Valladolid. Sergio González's team has not stood out for its scoring ability. What's more, a relegated team like Mallorca has scored 8 more goals than Valladolid (40 vs. 32) .

Enes Ünal (23 years old) has been the team's second top scorer with 6 goals. Together with Guardiola they have added almost half of Valladolid's goals. The lack of success of its attackers has penalized Valladolid, who was able to get more award in several matches.

Eibar: Fabián Orellana (34 years old, 8 goals) The Eibar forward was not a goal-scoring machine. Hence, the team's top scorer is not extreme, but extreme. Orellana (34 years old) has been the most influential player of Eibar during this course. Top scorer with 8 goals, top assistant and the player with the most shots on goal. And that his season ended prematurely. On June 30, Eibar made it official that the Chilean footballer was leaving the ranks of the armored team to stop in Valladolid. In this way, Orellana has not played any games in July.

And from a veteran of our League to another experienced player like Charles (36 years old). The Brazilian has been Eibar's second highest scorer with 6 goals, a far cry from the 15 goals he scored last season. Everything points to it being his last season with the Basque team.

Betis: Loren Morón (26 years old, 10 goals) Even without having the starting role, Loren (26 years old), with 10 goals, has been the top scorer for Betis this season. Understandably, the player with the most success in front of goal has chained so many substitutions, when he has shown a better performance than Borja Iglesias, one of the signings that has given the worst level in this League.

The second top scorer has been the Betis legend, Joaquín (turns 39 on July 21), with 8 goals. In the match against Alavés, the verdiblanco beat Real Madrid's Raúl González in number of games in First Division and with 551 he is the second player who has played the most in the history of the League, only behind Andoni Zubizarreta's 622.

Alavés: Lucas Pérez (31 years old, 11 goals) and Joselu (30 years old, 11 goals) If Alavés remains one more year in First Division, it is thanks, especially, to his team of forwards. Lucas Pérez (31 years old) and Joselu (30 years old) have scored 11 goals each, 22 goals from their team's 34. Almost nothing. The great society that they have formed, complementing their characteristics, has been vital for the salvation of those of Vitoria.

The albiazul team has needed throughout the season a greater contribution from the second line. Being so dependent on their forwards has caused them to reach the last games without having the First Ticket secured.Celta: Iago Aspas (32 years old, 14 goals) If we talk about goals in Vigo, we talk about Iago Aspas (32 years old), with 14 goals this League. On his shoulders he carries the weight of the entire team, more in recent seasons, where he has been decisive and saving. The Moaña scored his 100th goal against Mallorca with the light blue shirt in the First Division (now 101) and is positioned as the second top scorer in Celta history, just three goals from Hermidita.

Santi Mina (24 years old) has been the second highest scorer with 6 goals. The young player returned home last summer from Valencia CF with the aim of having a greater role. One of the best news for Celta is the connection between Aspas and Mina that little by little have managed to get along in the field.Leganés: Óscar Rodríguez (22 years old, 9 goals) Leganés had his strikers “stolen” and supplying his goals has been a difficult task. In mid-January, it was En-Nesyri (23 years old) who was packing for Seville. A month later, it was Braithwaite (29 years old) who was heading to Barcelona to sign for Barça. Both forwards were half Leganes, half of the goals, 56.75%, had the signature of the two attackers. And without them, Leganés has only lacked in many games that the ball entered, the most important thing.And since the sensitive departure of the two for Leganés, Óscar (22 years old) added to his class and quality the success in front of the goal. The midfielder, Real Madrid youth squad, has finished as top scorer of the cucumber team with 9 goals. After him, little goal in Butarque.

Mallorca: Ante Budimir (28 years old, 13 goals) RCD Mallorca's man goal was Ante Budimir (28 years old), with 13 goals. An insufficient figure for achieving permanence. Far from the Croatian record, a La Liga classic, Salva Sevilla (36 years old), with 5 goals, has been the second highest scorer for the Vermilion team.

Tied to the Andalusian, Cucho Hernández (21 years old). The young striker has been able to demonstrate his talent, especially in the last stretch of the season. However, their goals have been for statistics and little else, since Mallorca will be a Second Division team next season.

Espanyol: Raúl de Tomás (25 years, 4 goals) Many Blue and Whites will have remembered this season that Gerard Moreno was in their ranks not long ago. The departure of the Zarra from this League caused the arrival of Borja Iglesias last season, who with 20 goals collaborated for his team to play the Europa League this year. However, the two left Barcelona and the replacements have not been up to the task. This year Espanyol have had a great weakness: they have not had a goal.

The club placed their trust and 20 million in Raúl de Tomás (25 years old). Despite his promising start, injuries have weighed on the striker, who has been unable to help the Catalan team with his goals. He has scored 4 in the League. It is difficult for the former Real Madrid player to continue at Espanyol in the Second Division. The attacker does not lack suitors and Seville and Valencia are the teams that sound louder to get their loan. The departure of RDT would be a very noticeable loss for the “parakeets” in their fight to ascend the next course.
